A..R.L0RDLY. PANEL.

No. 603,147. PatentedApr. 26, 1898.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

ARTHUR ROTHESAY LORDVLY, OF ST. JOHN, CANADA.v

PANEL.

SPECIFICATION forming part Of Letters Patent N0. 603,147, dated April 26, 189,8'. Application led April 14, 1897. Serial No. 632,178. (No model.)

To all .whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ARTHUR RoTnEsAv LORDLY, a subject of the Queen of Great Britain, residing at St. John, `in the county of St. John and VProvince of New Brunswick, Canada, have invented a new and useful Panel, of which the following is a specification.

This inventionrelates to certain improvements in panels, especially designed for use inthe manufacture of household furniture, particularly that class known as case furniture; and its object is to provide a panel of artificially prepared material, such as strawboard, paper-board, millboard, or any Y c. it.

other similar and suitable iiexible material adapted to be bent to a curved or corrugated form and secured to a Wooden frame of the required shape and size.

The invention will be fully described hereinafter and particularlyT pointed out in the claims. l

In order that my invention may be the better understood, IV have illustrated in the accompanying drawings a wardrobe constructed of panels made in accordance with my invention, in which drawings- Figure 1 is a perspective View of a wardrobe. Fig. 2 is a horizontal section through the same. Fig.. 3 is a perspective view of one of the panel-frames, the panel being removed.

`Similar reference-numerals indicate similar parts in the several figures.

The wardrobe as a whole is indicated by l, and its top 2 and bottom 3 are made of wood. The side walls 4 are made of one form of curved panel and the front doors 5 and the rear walls 6 of another form of curved panel.

Referring particularly to thelsideset, each consists of a wooden frame having the vertical posts 7 and the connecting cross-rails 8. Each of the rails is convex on its outer face, as indicated at 9, and each of the vertical posts 7 is rabbeted longitudinally to form a recess 10 and a shoulder l1, extending from end `to end. The outer faces of the rails 8'are iiush with the bottoms of said recesses where they join, and the recesses are preferably of sufficient depth to receive the panel 12 and the securing-strips 13 and leave the outer face of the latter ush with the outer face of the post; but this is not essential.

The strips 13 will preferably be of wood and ries of nails or screws 14, which will prefer- I' ablyhave ornamental heads.

The outer face of the panel may be stamped, painted, or otherwise provided with ornamental designs, or be made to represent natural woods, at the pleasure of the manufacturer.

They may also be similarly ornamented on their inner faces.

Referring to the door 5, the structure is essentially the same as that already described, except that in this case the outer faces of the cross-rails are corrugated, as indicated at 15, thereby giving the panel a corrugated form in horizontal section. The panels are secured to the frame in the same manner already described with reference to the side walls 4.

Referring to the back 6, the construction is essentially the same as that of the doors, except that the panel is longer, extending from side to side of the wardrobe.

From the foregoing description it will be apparent that a panel made in accordance with my invention will be exceedingly light and at the same time possess sufficient strength and rigidity for all practical purpose; also, that it may be quickly and cheaply manufactured and ornamented in any desired manner. By curving or corrugating the panels their strength will be greatly increased, and should the wooden' frame shrink or expand under varying atmospheric conditions the panelsl will not become warped or twisted out of shape, for the curves in the panel will enable them to adj ust themselves to suchy expansion or contraction.

`It is evident ythat the corru'gations in the panel could be formed transversely across it instead of longitudinally; and it is to be understood that changes in the form, proportion, and minor details of construction may be reresorted to without departing from the spirit IOO or sacrificing any of the advantages of this invention.

Vhat I claim isl. In a panel, the combination of a Wooden frame, the cross-rails of which have curved outer faces, a panel of artificial flexible fabric curved to correspond to the curvature ofthe rails fitted on the outer face thereof, and a series of Wooden securing-strips on the outside of the panel, said strips being secured to the Wooden frame, substantially as described.

2. In a panel, the combination of a Wooden frame, the cross-rails of which have corrugated outer faces, a panel of artificial flexible fabric fitted on the outer face of said frame and being corrugated to correspond with the corrugations in the said rails, a series of Wooden securing-strips on the outside ofsaid panel, and means to secure the strips to the frame, substantially as described.

In a panel, the combination of a Wooden frame, the cross-rails of which have curves on their outer faces, and the vertical posts of which are rabbeted to forl'n a longitudinal shouldered recess, a panel of artificial flexible fabric bent to correspond to the curvature of the cross-rails and having its vertical edges engaging the shoulder of said recess, a series of Wooden securing-strips arranged on the outside of said panel, the edges of the vertical strips and the ends of the horizontal strips abutting against the shoulders of said recesses, and means to secure said strips to the frame, substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
