This taboret is constructed primarily of mahogany with poplar on the under side and also making up the drawers parts. The drawer fronts are made of Leopardwood (there is a drawer on each side). The top tilts both directions about 15 degrees and the entire table also may be raised and lowered on a dovetail rail, inset with aluminum bar, by which it can be locked into position. Traditional joinery is used throughout - dovetail, frame/panel, and mortise and tenon.  It is finished with aniline dye and coated with tung oil and polyurethane. It is just about four foot wide.
