Thank you for the suggestions, everyone. I’ll research steam bending. Looked at glue lam, and while it would be fun and interesting, seems like a lot of work. The table could be made in mere minutes, once laid out, if cut from straight boards; steam bending may be a happy medium between difficult glue-lam and fragile cut-curves.
As to top attachment, I was thinking the top will be thin, say 1/2”, so make a sub-top the same thickness, but smaller outside dimensions, notched out to receive the legs. Would create the same effect as if the legs were mortised into the tabletop, but much easier to execute.
