To tie the end frames permanently together, Paul uses a cross-rail, dovetailed at each end into the end frames top and bottom. These dovetails are consistent with traditional practices on furniture pieces such as desks, but Paul adopted these for creating the perfect union between desk sides and drawer openings.
