    When I read the title of this I was just sure you had drawn up a "leg lamp" just like "The Christmas Story" movie. But this table is nice too!

    Hi Tom,

    Maybe I'll draw up one of those leg lamps. They come from Italy, you know. It says "Fragile" on the box.

    My wife would probably break it while she was watering the plants or dusting or something.

    Nice job on the curved legs. I've got to do a little sketchup work pretty soon...

    Dave, I didnt mean for this to get away from your original post. Is this table something your planning on building or were you just working on your Sketchup skills?

    No worries, Tom. As I said at the start of the video in my link, a reader of the blog had asked about how to draw legs for a table like that so I made the video and then went ahead and drew the rest of the table. I'm always working on my SketchUp skills. One day I'll figure it out. It just takes perseverance.

    Thanks, Brent.
