An “H” stretcher connects the tapered square legs, which have a subtle decorative detail. The heads of the old handmade nails that connect the top to the base are visible on the top. A single drawer provides storage. The apron height is an accommodating 24.5”. Space for three chairs on each side and one on each end, for seating up to eight.
