The table features a generous top, a boldly turned shaft and a tri-partite base; dovetailed battens secure the top to birdcage mechanism of extremely robust and whimsical design, with a highly unusual and sophisticated locking device composed of wood, employing the spring-actuated flexibility of the wood itself to engage it.
The large size and refined joinery of this particular table are characteristics may be associated with Chapin School examples. This large size is excellent for use as a breakfast or bridge table or small space dining table. For a related example by Amzi Chapin see: Thomas P. and Alice K. Kugelman with Robert Lionetti, Connecticut Valley
