A low pine work table with two planks on the top with tongue-and-groove join. There are braces at either end which are nailed against the end skirts. The tapered legs are square sided with bevelled corners. The table is of mortise and tenon construction with four pegs joining the legs to the skirts. The table top appears to have originally been joined to the skirts with pegs, but the pegs have been broken off beneath the top and it simply rests on the frame.
