Be it known that I, JOHN A.

My invention relates to a measure to be used for either dry or liquid purposes; and my invention consists in a measure whose body and handle are constructed of veneer, as hereinafter described, and pointed out in the 20 claims.

Referring to the drawings, A represents the body of the measure, B, the bottom, and G, a handle. The body is made of a multiple or plurality of veneers, the layers being prefer- 2 5 ably secured together either by means of some suitable adhesive material, or otherwise, and their grains preferably being crossed. The bottom Bis preferably solid, and secured to the body by tacks or otherwise; but it also may be made of veneers. The handle is formed in one piece with the body, as represented in Figs. 2 and 4.

A measure made ofthis material is light, cheap, and durable.
