Ladies Table Plan
PLATE XII. The article of furniture the design and construction of which are shown in the present plan is another convenience that will be recognised by every lady who plies the needle in any description of work.
Its upper portion consists of a box for containing all the articles required in the processes of plain and ornamental needlework, the hinged lid of which serves as a small table. The shelf or tray below is for holding any articles, more or less bulky, that may be required from time to time.
Such a table is conducive to tidiness and system, and can be readily moved about as required, handles being provided for that purpose. Although no lock is shown, one can be added to the upper portion if the maker thinks it desirable.
Fig. i is a side view, and Fig. 2 an end view of the work-table complete. Fig. 3 is a part section, showing the depth of the box and tray. Fig. 4 shows the construction of the table or lid, one corner being given, showing its mitred frame, securely tongued together, and its panel grooved and tongued to the frame.
Fig. 5 shows the manner in which the sides and bottom of the box are let into, and angle-blocked to, the legs. Fig. 6 shows enlarged drawings of the handles, and their attachment to the ends of the box. Any wood may be used in the formation of this piece of furniture; but seeing that it is of small size, and for a lady's use, we would suggest Spanish mahogany as the most desirable wood. If, however, the furniture of the room in which the work-table is to be placed is all of one description of wood, finished in a special manner, then the work-table should be made to match the same.
