The customer had a table in his home and told me to match it. I did. It is a duplicate of a table in Independence Hall, Philadelphia, PA. It was built for his daughter. It is made of all solid Cherry. Details: finger jointer drawer fronts and backs, floating drawer bottom of 5/16 thick cherry, tapered legs fastened to rails with mortise tenon and pinned (imitation decorative pins), top fastened using floating keepers, drawer slides are all wood, drawer has an adjustable traveling stop, drawer hits silencers at end of travel to rear,solid brass pull. A real challenge and a pleasue to build.
