Latourell Creek Bridge
Posted April 9, 2013, by Jean Dowds (mywoods [at] myfairpoint [dot] net)

A wonderful craftsman here in Danbury, N.H. has built a birdseye maple table, the support portion designed from a photo he took of this bridge. The chairs have curved portions to compliment the design. Obviously, he loved this bridge.
