Sept- 16, 1930. M. E. WAPLES TABLE Filed N v, 16, 1927 2 Sheets-Sheet 1 Sept 16, 1930. M. E. wAPLEs 1,775,877

TABLE Filed Nov, F16, 1927 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Patented Sept. 16, 1930 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE MARGARET E. WAPLES, F CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE TABLE Application filed November 16, 1927. Serial No. 233,702.

This invention relates to a table having two elongated tops of similar dimensions which can be placed in superposed alinement to form a narrow table which will occupy little space, or which can be arranged crossways to form a card or tea table for four people.

The table is also convenient for the sick room, being normally arranged alongside 1. the bed or chair in the narrow folded posipivot,

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of another form of the table with the two tops in alinement,

Fig. 5 is a similar view with the upper top placed transversely to the lower top, and

Fig. 6 is a vertical longitudinal section through the central portion of the second form of table.

Referring first to Figs. 1 to 3, the table has a top 1 of greater length than width to which are secured legs 2, braced by strips 3. A second top 4 is superposed upon the first and the two tops are pivoted together at their mid-points by a bolt 5, the head of which is countersunk into the upper top. A spacing member 6 is inserted between the two tops to prevent the lower one from being scratched by the upper. The top 4 can be arranged in superposed alinement with the top 1 as shown in Fig. 1 or can be turned into a transverse position as shown in Fig. 2.

Figs. 4 to 6 show a slightly modified arrangement of the tops. The lower top 10 has a transverse cut out portion 11 of the same width as the upper top 12 into which the said upper top can be slid as shown in Fig. 5. In this position the top 12 rests upon the braces 13. The sides of the cut out portion are undercut and the sides of the top 12 are correspondingly bevelled, thus producing a joint which will prevent the top 12 from tipping.

'When either form of table is to be used as a card table, for example, the top 4 or 12 is arranged in the transverse position and the players sit at the open corners, each having a personal space for counters trays, etc. Both tables are also suitable for invalid tables, but the one shown in Figs. 4 to 6 particularly so, because the top 12 can be made to extend farther across the chair or bed by inserting it in the cut out portion only far enough to give it sufiicient support. The removable top 12 can, when reversed, be used as an ironing or rolling board, and when removed and placed across the arms of a chair, as a typewriter or lap sewing table.

Having described my invention. I claim:

1. A table having a top of greater length than width, a second top of dimensions equal to those of said first mentioned top. said first mentioned top having a transverse cut out portion of a width corresponding to the width of said second top, said second top being adapted to be placed transversely to said first mentioned top in said out out portion, or to be placed in superposed alinement upon said first mentioned top.

2. A table as specified in claim 1 in which the sides of said cut out portion are undercut and the sides of said second top are correspondingly bevelled.

MARGARET E. WAPLES.
