About Peg Tables
Peg tables were common in the 18th and early 19th century. Originally, the term peg was used to describe the shape of the leg but because most of these tables have their tops pegged to the undercarriage, the word has come to denote the method of construction. Along the underside of the table top is a projecting ridge, the peg runners. The peg runners fit snugly over the side of the table and are fastened with four wooden pegs. Commonly made with two planks of wood, the table featured here is constructed with three planks. One of the peg holes has been blocked indicating signs of age and wear over the years.
