CONSTRUCTION: The top is pegged into sides, sides dovetailed into base, front drawer stiles morticed into sides and with a facia strip sprigged onto the edges of the sides. The drawer supports are set into rabbeted grooves and connected with a mortice at back. The feet are set against horizontally grained blocks 5/8″ high (to a 2-3/8″ foot); back foot brackets are chamfered and nailed to bottom. The two horizontal back boards are butt jointed, set into lap jointed sides, and wrought nailed at sides only.
