Eventhough I used the Arch method, I have received many questions about my arches. I actually call them leapers. If you are considering adding arches to your display, check these out. Its not the only good way, but they certainly work for me. I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. After 3 seasons of setup and take down, I still love them and am very satisfied. There are also some pictures of the mini lathe I built to wrap the Arch sections.
