    [QUOTE=Jim Becker]Of course...that means you now need to actually make it!!

    Gee I think I need the use of a nice big Jointer/Planer wouldn't know where I could find one already set up would you?

    I know about several, but all are rather long commutes for you...

I'm a kinda average-sized guy, and while I'm standing, my knuckles are 32" off the floor. That is, most of your table would be down in front of my knees. I like to make hall tables taller -- at least 36", and better at 38".
    You got me wondering how tall my halfmoon table was so I pulled out the tape and the surface is at 32.75"

    I'm 6'3" and either I've got extra short arms or you've got really long ones. I still have to raise my arm up about 4" to bring my fingers to rest on the surface. My knee comes about midway between the apron and the lower stretcher on my table. I've actually had minor regrets that I didn't make it an inch shorter. 36 to 38 seems really high to me. Just my $0.02.

    Bart/Dave - the table has morphed into a very nice looking design.

    Bart, if there aren't any more changes, I'll get busy and redraw it to exact dimensions and get you some working drawings.

    Hey Dave if your "giving " away drawings, I'll take a set too. I really like the design and the ability you have to use the Sketch Up program leaves me in aw.

    Jim, it's really Bart's table. If he says it's alright, I'll send you the drawings when I've completed working out the joinery. I'm mostly finished with it but still have dimensioning to do.

    Chris, how many carrots do I have to dangle in front of you? Just kidding but I know you'd make good use of SU.

    Jim, thanks. Here's a little teaser.

    Nice, Dave! I'm also in favor of curved doors as Jamie suggested earlier today on those corners. That's a bunch of usable space. Adds some additional challenge to the build, but...

    I don't have a problem with anyone having a copy of the plans as long as they build the table & display the pictures.

    I know sneaky aren't I?

    Jim Dunn, Bart said you can have a copy, too.

    I hope I don't get flooded with requests, now. I'm afraid my computer's pixel cartridge won't be able to handle it.

    By the way, I'll be expecting payment from everyone who builds this table. You have to promise to send me pictures of it completed.

    Dave, a pic will be in the proverbial mail as soon as I get it completed. I do thank you and Bart for your generosity.

    I wonder if a full bridle joint wouldn't be an option on the top rail/leg joint? Or, a dovetailed stretcher from the front center to the back. Either or both would add a bit of strength. I think I read the whole thread, but didn't see details on the joinery. I am assuming that the drawer runners will be M&T, front and back. French DT's for the drawer fronts? Curved rails are to be bent laminations?
    Looks like the side edges of the drawer fronts will be coming to a point,and if so, will be prone to chipout in use. Might want to leave a bit of meat there to avoid that. Drawer fronts to be bent laminations also?
    Are you sure we can't get those cockbeads back? That would provide some shadow line interest on the vertical.
    I like the idea of doors on the ends, and suspect they could be bagged pretty easily.
    Love that SU. Wish I had another 6 hours in the day so that I could learn to use it. It is not the price that bothers me, just the learning curve.
