What is this?

A friend was antique shopping and came across this old buffet, and one of the pull out drawers was a leaf or cutting board or something. The joinery... it blew my mind



(I have no idea if I can hotlink to ebay, we'll find out)

I just thought I would share something old and neat.

The joint is called a Knapp Joint. It's not very common and only used on American made furniture. Out of all the years I worked on antique repair I've only seen one piece of a furniture using this joint.

In the old days they used a machine like this to make the joint. There are places around you could get a router templet to make it.
