Excerpt from The Boy Mechanic, Book 2, 1915.
Use for an Old Table
An old table of the extension type, that may have a post
broken, can be used against the wall in a kitchen as a work
table. If there is a damaged part, that side is removed by sawing
the crosspieces of the table in two and attaching it to the
wall against the leaf which is turned in a reverse position.
