I agree completely. That should give you an indication of what I think about that particular join. ;)

Look at the pictures closely - the table top is notched with a 1/4 round cutout to fit the legs, and the legs are topped level with the top of the table. It's possible that there is a mortice joint hidden inside that cutout that's simply secured by the hangar bolt but I wouldn't bet on it without actual disassembly of the table.

And I wouldn't put too much faith in a table built using this technique, personally. The entire load of the table is relying on the shear strength of four little bolts...

comment Is there a way to trace water pipes through walls?
That was half the question: the whole question was how to trace water pipes with the goal of finding the shutoff valve..

And as stated above - you still won't find your valves without actually looking.

@UNECS None of those will tell you where a valve is located. You still have to cut a hole and look to find that.

Hang on - are we clear on what I mean by air return? They need to suck air, not blow it...
