Given the same basic inspiration, how would three decidedly different woodworkers come up with a design for an arched-leg table? Fine Woodworking senior editor Mark Schofield decided to find out. Inspired by the graceful arches of a bridge spanning a Connecticut river, Schofield sent a photograph to Jere Osgood, Wayne Marcoux, and Garrett Hack and supplied a few main dimensions, requesting that they design a table based on those arches. The result may surprise you, or even inspire you to come up with your own design.
