Construction

The frame rails are tenoned into the legs; each joint is secured with two pegs driven through the side and visible on the outside. The top is pegged to the frame. The applied skirt molding is secured in place by thin nails as are the fretwork corner brackets. In the interior, rounded pine blocks reinforce the leg joints and the top. The interior edge of each leg is chamfered. Source: Oswaldo Rodriguez Roque, American Furniture at Chipstone, (Madison, Wis.: University of Wisconsin Press, 1984), 274.
