This design from my Aurora series is the one that most resembles the structural arches in a bridge.
The bottom shelf is floating on four corbels which are right behind the four inner legs

It reminds me a bit of an Irish wake table with extra legs.These tables would be used to lay out the coffin on and every available extra space on top of the table would be filled with half full beer glasses.Alistair
