Very clean! That takes into account a lot, if not all of the structural details necessary for that table as well. Really great, Dan!

I like your table design, but I really like that bridge! Now you’ve made me want to make a trip just so I can go across it and look at it in real life.

The bridge is truely awesome up close. What is a real thrill is driving under it.

Our cross country short-cut …. Memphis to McMinnville, ... drove us under the bridge. a real treat !

Google “natchez trace parkway bridge” it has won many awards for it’s beautiful design.

Great job on design and your use of Sketchup. Are you going to try and build it?

Dan,

That is a really cool design. I grew up in Gallatin, TN. I have seen the bridge once. Interesting design, but I always thought it looked out of place where it was. It was like you are driving down the road in the country, come around a corner and there is that bridge.

As for the table, keep us updated on the progress. I really love the design and cannot wait to see it in real wood.

I will have to stop by and see you the next time the family and I are going through McMinnville. We regularly take that route going from Cookeville to Pulaski.

Have fun building the table.

Hello Rob
We are nomads. I no longer live in McMinnville. We relocated again about 3 years ago. This time to Middletown, Ohio.
Regards
DAN
