This table is built of solid alder throughout, with mortise and tenon joinery. The curved aprons at the corners were formed with multiple laminations of alder which were clamped to a form while the glue dried. This is an alternative method to steam binding.

What looks like a dimple on the left side of the table leg is actually a routed cove that encircles the leg at the point where its taper begins.
