'lO ALL WHOM I'l MAY CONCERN:
Be it known that I, DUANE DOTY, of the city of Detroit, in the county of Wayne, in the State of Michigan, have invented :t new und improved Table for family use; and I do herebjr declare tlntt the following is a full and exact description thereof, reference being haul to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon.
rlhe nature of my invention consists in constructing :t foul-dogged table, so that it cnn bc easily folded so as to occupy but little space when not in use. I
Figure 1 is a. perspective view of the table with :i part of the top cnt away so ns to show the bolt C.
Figure f2 is :i side view of the same when folded.
Figure 3 is an end view of the sa'me.
A und B are cross-pieces, which connect the legs in the ordinary way.' Notchcs a :ind (1, tig. 2 are cut into the pieces A and B, whose width equals the thickness of the cross-pieces, and their united depth equnls the depth of A. vWhen thus made and they are placed ,at right angles with euch other, the cross-pieces will drop into the notches and the upper surf-.Lees be in the same plane, giving :Ln even support for tlic top D. When the pieces are drawn entirely out ofthe notches a and b, they nre prevented from being entirely separated by the bolt G, figs. 1 and 2, which passes through both pieces, and has a. head on one cnil and :t nut on the other. The bolt C is long enough to permit the pieces A :ind B to be drawn entirely out of the notches a :ind b. The cross-bar B is shorter than A, so that it can be revolved abouty the bolt C in the stime plane :ts A. The top D is attached to the longer crossbow A by the hinges-t' c, iig. 2, so that it muy be turned clown parallel tothe plane of the cross-bars, as shown in figs. 2 and 3.
I tlo not claim a. four-legged table, or attachingl the top to the cross-piece, but I lo claim7 and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The combination of the bolt C, notches a and b, and the hinged top, when made for joint action, substantially as herein described and for the purposes herein set forth.
