Default PHP loop through database and limit number of entries

Going to try to explain this as best I can. I have a bunch of stuff in a database and I need to display this info within a table. This isn't a problem at all but, I need it to only display 3 td tags per line and then move on to the row.

so i need it to do :


<td>My First Row</td>
<td>My First Row 2</td>
<td>My First Row 3</td>

<td>My Second Row</td>
<td>My Second Row 2</td>
<td>My Second Row 3</td>

and continue to do this through every entry in the database table.

so I have something like this that will display the info:


for ($i = 1; $i <= $num; $i++){

$chairArray = mysql_fetch_array($chairResult);
$chairName = $chairArray['name'];
$chairDescription = $chairArray['description'];
$chairImage = $chairArray['image'];

echo "<tr>";
echo "<td>";
echo "<img src=\"images/catalog/ottomans/thumbs/$chairImage\" width=\"157\" height=\"147\" />";
echo "<br />";
echo $chairName;
echo "</td>";
echo "</tr>";

Thanks & regards
