Elegant Table Top Fasteners

Elegant Table Top Fasteners

On my best work, I want the bottom of my project to look as good asthe top. That's when I make an old-fashioned set of wooden tabletopfasteners, or "buttons," rather than use the modern stamped-steel type.

A button allows a solid-wood top to expand and contract through theseasons. When the top's grain runs parallel to the rail, the buttonslides in and out of the slot as the top slowly moves. When the grainruns at right angles to the rail, the button slides side to side.

To make the buttons, cut dadoes in a long block (see photo). Drill andcountersink holes for the screws and then chamfer the long edges. Sawapart the blocks and chamfer the ends with a file or disc sander.
