Construction

The two-board top has a rounded edge and outset, half-round corners. The top boards are joined to each other by rectangular wood splines near the midpoint of the short rails below. The top is fixed to the rails by wood pins at each corner of the frame and at the short rails, and by a screw pocket inside each rail. The straight and scalloped rails are tenoned and twice-wood-pinned to the rectangular blocks atop the turned, tapering, slightly flaring legs, which end in outset shod pad feet. Notes compiled by T. B. Lloyd from photographs supplied by Elliott and Grace Snyder.
