120 mortise and tennons, 12 dovetails, a lot of biscuits, a few dowels and there you have it! Two end tables and a couch table made of maple finished with three coats of 35 sheen lacquer. The only mechanical fasteners used are for the undermount soft close slides for the drawer. One end table doesn’t have a bottom shelf because the client has a box for kindling they are going to keep under there so the dog doesn’t start to play with the sticks

-- A hammer dangling from a wall will bang and sound like work when the wind blows the right way.

Ditto what Lew said. I’d like to see a pic of the underside as to how/where the tops are attached
