Southern Walnut Stretcher Base Table

Southern Walnut Stretcher Base Table

This heavy walnut table is very solidly constructed. Not only does if have stretchers, but there is also a tongue and groove poplar panel nailed into a rabbet at the lower edge inside the skirt that seems to serve no purpose other than extra bracing. If the top lifted off it would make a storage compartment, but the top is pegged on with no sign of ever having been hinged or being a lift top.
