They are a marvel of thoughtful design. Affixed to the top of each dowel leg is a “kidney-shaped” stamped metal socket. Each socket attaches to the underside of the table with only two screws. Underneath each top is a wood frame, which provides added stability to these lightweight tables and a recessed area into which the dowel legs could be stored during shipping.
