Curved-Front Hall Table

A curved apron and tapered legs with inlays really set this classic table apart from the crowd.

This curved-front hall table brings out the curiosity in any craftsman. How are the curved aprons made? Is some kind of fancy jig used to get the inlays so tight? In fact, both of these seemingly complex woodworking tasks have simple solutions. The curved aprons, for example, are made from plywood and have a series of saw kerfs cut in the back to allow the wood to bend. And instead of traditional inlays, the simple technique outlined in this plan achieves the same look.
