Wood End Table(ID: A57207)
The dynamics of wood movement have been accounted for and should not impede the slide of the drawer. Behind the drawer is a bow of wood, which acts as the drawer stop. Each rear side of the drawer has a felt tip. Each handle was hand carved and sanded and is joined to the drawer with two 1/8th inch dowels and glue. The legs are each joined by the arch placed in the leg dado. The front and back components are joined by mortise & tenon joinery.
The upper box supports are screwed in and then a square is chiseled and a square peg is fashioned. Upper and lower components are joined by four dowels and glue in the center third only, in order to allow for seasonal movement.
The Night Stands are finished in five coats of Tung Oil and the sides of the drawers are finished in Tung Oil and Wax.
A high quality furniture oil with UV protection is recommended for the base and top periodically.
