    Danish Modern?

    Very loosely based on a table designed by Edmund Spence and manufactured in 1953. The original is 7 feet long. Big living rooms in those days, I guess.

    That's very cool. Lots of curves to draw!

    Lottsa arcs and follow-me's in that one. I would find it challenging, for sure. Kinda like the design though.

    I really like the design, and still marvel at the skills needed to draw it in SketchUp.

    Vaughn,

    Thank you. You could do it, too.

    I know you're right, Dave. I've just not invested the time (nor really had the need) to learn it that well yet.

    slick, Dave. I watched the video and it was fascinating to see the process you followed to generate that.

    I'm curious about the rest of the understructure. You focussed on the one leg, but is there also any short stretchers from side to side? All I can see is the long stretcher, and I'm not sure that is enough.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Art, I didn't find any good views to show the stretcher but there is something between the legs above the height of the long stretchers. From what little I could tell, I'm guessing it is a rail maybe 2 inches wide (tall). Based on the period in which the table was built, the rail and legs are probably joined with dowels. The top is probably attached to those rails with screws up through the bottom. Since they didn't really show in the photos, I didn't bother to draw them in. the original table is over 7' long but I made my model shorter to make the legs a little easier to see. The table was just an example to show how to draw a leg like that.
