KNOCKDOWN PEDESTAL TABLE WITH STORAGE RCEPTACLE Filed May 1l, 1950 I ll,

76 .79 INVENTOR. 2 22 JJ 25 geonaBd ,akeva @QM/Jui@ Patented Sept. 18 1951 OFFICE KNOCKDOWN PEDESTAL TABLE WITH STORAGE RECEPTACLE Leonard S. Baker, Clarksdale, Miss. Application May 11, 1950, Serial No. 161,381l

3 Claims. 1

This invention relates to furniture and has special reference to a table consisting of separable parts one of which constitutes a receptacle for the remainder of the parts, the device being preferably termed a knockdown table.

One important object of this invention is to provide a novelV arrangement of separable parts in a table, such parts being capable of assembly in a set up arrangement wherein no bolts or screws are necessary to hold the parts assembled.

Another important object of this invention is to provide a novel arrangement for storing separable parts in one part of the table.

A further object of the invention is to provide a novel arrangement of the separated parts for storage, the arrangement being such that the stored parts of the table will not be accidentally displaced from the part wherein they are stored.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a novel storage arrangement whereby stored parts are prevented from rattling.

Another object of the invention is to provide a lightweight, portable, pedestal type table which permits the users thereof to seat or remove themselves without accidental jarring of the table, as is often the case in a light portable table having four corner legs.

A further object of the invention is to provide a knockdown pedestal type table which is light in weight lbut very stable and which provides for storage of the parts in the top thereof.

With the above and other objects in view, as will be presently apparent, the invention consists in general of certain novel details of construction and combinations of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and particularly claimed.

In the drawings, like characters of reference indicate like parts in the several views. and

Figure 1 is a side elevation, partly broken away and in section, of the table with its parts assembled and set up;

Figure 2 is a bottom plan view of the table with the parts disassembled and partly stored;

Figure 3 is a side elevation of the table with the parts arranged as in Figure 2; and

Figure 4 is a vertical median section showing the table with the parts completely stored.

In the embodiment of the invention as here disclosed the table is provided with a top I0. This top is here shown as rectangular in plan but may be of any desired shape. Extending downwardly from the top I0 is an apron I I having sides which are arranged at right angles to each other so When the form of the top is square in plan, the apron will preferably extend downwardly from the periphery of the top. Centrally beneath the i top is fixed a boss I2 having a socket I3 formed therein to open downwardly. In order to brace the top I0 ribs I4 extend radially from the boss I2 to the junctions of the sides of the apron II. Extending inwardly from the lower edges of the sides of the apron I I are flanges I5 having their ends meeting at the corners of the apron. One opposite pair of the flanges I5 is partially cut away as at I6, these cut away portions confronting each other. On the inner face of each side of the apro-n Il is xed one end of a leaf spring I1, the other end of which is bowed toward the boss I2. Also, under two of the ribs I4 are fixed leaf springs I8 of inverted C-shape. The parts above described form the table top with a storage compartment on its under side.

The table has a single leg I9 of a shape and size to be gripped and held securely by the 'C springs I8. At its upper end this leg is reduced as at 20 to t snugly in the socket I3. At its lower end the leg I9 is similarly provided with a reduced end 2|.

The base 22 of this table is of circular formation in plan and is provided on its upper face with a low Truste-conical central portion 23 having an upwardly opening socket 24 formed therein for reception of the reduced end 2l of the leg I9. The base 22 is of less diameter than the distance between opposite sides of the apron I I and is of slightly greater diameter than the distance between opposed edges of the flanges i5, the parts I6 being suiiiciently cut away toallow the base 22 to pass between them.

In arranging the leg and base for storage they are detached from the top and separated one from the other. The leg I9 is then placed in the spring clips I8. The base, as shown in Figure 2, then tilted and pushed through the cut away spaces of the flanges I5 in the direction of the arrow A until it engages against the spring II on the apron side remote from the spaces I6. At this time the opposite edge of the base will be in position to clear the opposite flange edge and is pushed up above the flange. It is now moved, with aid of the resilience of the spring I'I on the apron remote from spaces IG in a direction opposite to the arrow A, compressing the spring on the side of the apron with which it will then engage. The base will thus be automatically centered and spring held against rattling by the four springs I1 and cannot be accidentally freed as to provide a substantially square enclosure. u from its stored position.

2. In a knockdown table, a top, an apron dei pending from said top and having idesqfomning the walls of a substantially square lrepeptagle, flanges extending inwardly from saidmapronsides., a base resting on said flanges when'housed within said receptacle, one pair of gsaidjflanges have ing out away portions providing gaps through which the base is slid `for housing and Withdrawal, springs carried Non the apron sides and 20 hearing againstopposi-te .parts Y.of :the edge of -said `-base when resting onsaid flangesfa-nda vleg sup,- -iported in said receptacle `lbetween `the top and base.

3. In a :knockdoWn-tablaa top, 1an aprondie- 'pending from said `top.a-ndhavingsides forming `the walls `of a substantially Vsquare receptacle,

anges extending inwardly from said apron sides,

a base resting on said iianges when housed within said receptacle, one pair of said flanges having eut away portions providing gaps through which the base is slid for housing and Withdrawal, springs carried on the apron sides and bearing against opposite parts of the edge of said base when resting on said anges, a leg supported in said reeptacle--betwen the ,top and base, and

spring ;clips opening downwardlyfrom said top yfor engaging and supporting said leg.
