C. S. HODGEN ORNAMENTAL TABLE TOP Filed Oct. 10, 1960 Nov. 6, 1962 z :u ,5 CARL s. HoDGr-:N

INVENTOR.

BY Q,

ATT'iY United States Patent 3,062,604 GRNAMENTAL TABLE TGP Carl S. Hodgen, 2150 SE. 110th Ave., Portland 16, Oreg. Filed Oct. 10, 1960', Ser. No. 61,674 4 Claims. (Cl. 311-106) This invention relates to improvements in surface coverings for table tops and the like, a method of, and composition of matter for, producing the same.

The principal object of the invention is the production of a composition of spaced apart fiat three-dimensional rigid pieces of polished agate, crushed agate within the spaces between the agate pieces, an underlying layer of white marble chips and the bonding together of the agate and marble components into a strong durable fire-resistant integral unit.

Another object of the invention is the placement of the white marble chips beneath the agate components in such a manner that it will enhance the appearance of the product by the refraction of light through the translucence of the agate components.

The foregoing and other objects and advantages which will become subsequently apparent reside in the details of construction as more fully hereinafter described and claimed, reference being had to the accompanying drawing forming a part hereof and in which:

FIGURE l is a perspective view of the finished product made in accordance with my invention.

FIGURE 2 is a sectional elevational view on an enlarged scale taken approximately along the line 2-2 of FIGURE 1.

FIGURE 3 is a top plan view of a base adapted for use as a component of a table top and which also serves as a form over and around which the finished table top or other surface covering is formed.

FIGURE 4 is a similar view of a ring adapted to surround the form of FIGURE 3 in concentric spaced relation thereto.

FIGURE 5 is a plan view of a frame having a bottom covering of plastic and adapted to support the form of FIGURE 4 upon a fiat surface.

FIGURE 6 is a sectional elevational view on an enlarged scale taken along the line 6 6 of FIGURE 5 and also through a fragment of the base and its covering in the course of construction while in an inverted position.

Referring now more particularly to the drawing wherein like references of character designate like parts and particularly FIGURE 3 thereof, reference numeral 1 indicates generally a base which is preferably made of Wood and can be of any size or design in plan view, although in the present embodiment it is shown as circular with its top indicated at 2 and its perimetrical surface indicated at 3.

A frame indicated generally at 4 and made up of front, rear, and side members 5, 6, 7, and 8, respectively, has secured to its underside a sheet of Milar indicated at 9 adapted to support the ring member 10 of FIGURE 4 upon a flat surface for cooperation with the base member 1 when the same is placed concentrically within the rmg.

The composition of matter of this invention consists of a multiplicity of irregularly shaped flat three-dimensional rigid pieces of polished agate 12, unpolished crushed agate 13, white marble chips 14, and bonding material such as resin or the like indicated at 15.

In producing my invention the same is accomplished in an inverted position within the frame 4 as shown in FIGURE 6.

The first step in practicing the method of the present invention top is to apply a thin coating of resin to the exposed Milar within the frame. Next arrange the ice polished flat agate pieces 12 upon the resin coating in any desired spaced apart artistic arrangement relative to each other. The full depth of the spaces 18 between the agate pieces are then filled with the crushed agate 13. Following this I pour resin over the crushed agate only and allow to dry for 3 to 6 hours, after which I apply a layer of the white marble chips 14 over the entire area of the agate pieces and the crushed agate. The layer of marble chips is then coated with resin indicated at 15.

The concentric space 19 between the perimetrical edge of the base 1 and the inner wall of the ring 10 is filled with crushed agate 13 and resin and allowed to dry for 6 to S hours. When dry, the table top at this stage of its construction is removed from within the ring 1f)` and inverted into the position shown in FIGURE 2. When in this position the top surface of the agate pieces 12 and the crushed agate therebetween is ground with a carborundum lapidary lwheel and then polished with a buing 'Wheel To this polished and finished surface I apply a coat of resin, cover it with Milar, then with a hand roller smooth out the resin evenly over the entire surface and then remove the Milan A coating of resin 20 is finally applied to entirely cover the finished product, then as at 21 to the perimetrical edge thereof, and as at 22 to the underside of the ring of crushed agate 13 and the adjacent perimetrical margin of the base,

While I have shown a particular form of embodiment of my invention, I am aware that many minor changes therein will readily suggest themselves to others skilled in the art without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention. Having thus described my invention what l claim as new and desire to protect by Letters Patent is:

l. A table top comprising a base layer of White marble chips, a layer of spaced apart fiat three-dimensional rigid pieces of irregularly shaped polished quartz superimposed upon said layer of marble chips, crushed unpolished quartz disposed within the spaces between said flat three-dimensional pieces of quartz, an aggregate of said marble chips and crushed quartz surrrounding the perimetrical edges of said table top and to the adjacent edges of said flat pieces of quartz, and said marble chips, said quartz pieces, said crushed quartz and said aggregate all integrated within a solidified mass of transparent material.

2. A table top composed of a base layer of white marble chips, a top layer of spaced apart flat three-dimensional rigid pieces of irregularly shaped polished agate, unpolished crushed agate filling the spaces between said flat agate pieces, said chips, flat agate pieces and said crushed agate all integrated within a solidified mass of transparent material whereby a design of dimensional quality is produced by the contrast between said polished flat agate pieces and said unpolished crushed agate.

3. A table top composed of a base layer of white marble chips, a top layer of spaced apart flat three-dimen sional rigid pieces of irregularly shaped agate polished to translucency, unpolished crushed agate filling the full depth of the spaces between said agate pieces, said chips, flat agate pieces and said crushed agate all integrated within a solidified mass of transparent material `whereby a design of dimensional quality is produced by the contrast between the unpolished crushed agate and the natural color of said polished agate pieces enhanced by said base layer of White marble chips.

4. A surface covering comprising a sheet of resinous bonding material,

a layer of white marble chips completely overlying said sheet,

a layer of spaced-apart flat three-dimensional rigid pieces of irregularly shaped agate, polished to translucency and supported upon said layer of chips,

4 unpolished crushed agate filling the full depth of the of light from said White marble chips through the spaces between said agate pieces, translucence of said at agate pieces. said sheet, marble chips, fiat agate pieces and said crushed agate all integrated into a solidied mass of References Cmd 111 the 51e 0f hlS Patent htranparerlt maferifal. l n d l, d 5 UNITED STATES PATENTS w ere y a es1gn o imensiona quaiy 1s emeate by the perimetrical edges of said agate pieces and the olenskl "FFb'lgZ g thickness thereof, and by the contrast between the 1708080 Cofml 9 1929 unpolished crushed agate and the natural color of 17103 61 Kne Apg-23 1323 sald polished agate pleces enhanced by the refractlon 10 2198611 98 Kolker et al. n n-": Max; 30: 1961 3,000,754 Zentrnyer Sept. 19, 1961
