Hard Maple with bent laminated legs (8 layers). The upper table surface frames are attached to the top of the legs with double wedged double tenons – two tenons at the top of each leg, with two wedges per tenon. They’ve held through 18 years of kids! No metal fasteners – it’s all mortise and tenon joinery, with dowels connecting the balls between the base and the legs. Finish is too many coats of water based black gloss, then clear coat.
