Default Rube Goldberg Hall Table

This is a hall table I built a dozen years ago. No mortises, no
tenons, no dovetails--but it has fulfilled its purpose well. The top
is stained and oiled poplar, the rest is black lacquered as a nod to
our many Japanese pieces. The knobs are "solid brass" according to
the packaging from Lowe's. Turns out they are solid pot metal with a
nice brass finish.

Had to build a tapering jig for the legs. Not an heirloom. When my
wife and I are gone it will probably fetch $5 at the estate auction.

Gotta ask then... how is it held together?

Notched triangular pieces at the corners (forget what they are
called). They are screwed to the apron and to the legs. Plus glue.

That works! It's a relatively low stress piece (i.e., no big pressure or
weight loads trying to tear it apart)
so that is a reasonable way to do it... looks nice.

I like the black lacquer effect. Nice contrast. Well done.

Looks like Hotei, there? Appropriate, also, if so! Give his belly a rub, for luck.... or have I misunderstood part of his "meaning", contentment.

Will do. Also have Ebisu. He lives out in the back yard near the
fish pond.
