Wooden table with a dodecagon table top and rounded out legs.<br />
<br />
This dog-legged tray-table has its name derived from the shape of its curved legs which resemble those of dogs. The table top and its raised brim are made from the same single piece of thick board. Aprons between the legs, immediately under the table top, are not shaped in identical proportion, as they were initially made long and were shortened where it was needed. Bamboo pegs are driven into the table top to join it with the aprons, and the stretchers are nailed to the legs by nails driven in from the bottom.
