This project took a lot more work than i had intended. A 2×8 was used and cut into 3/8 strips and then glued together and put into a jig to curve the wood. i was surprised at how strong the strips are my niece and nephew use it for a bridge and their between 40 to 60 lbs a piece.

This is cool! And yes, could be used as a small bridge.

J,
That is very elegant. I like the way it just flows! How did you assemble it? Is it mortised & tennoned???
