Restored - Rare-machine Age-industrial- Antique Cast Iron Drafting Table:
You are offerding on A VERY SPECIAL PIECE OF AMERICAN INDUSTRIAL PERIOD FURNITURE. The table reads in large embossed letters on the base front side- J.G & J.N. Alexander Grand Rapids Mich Pat'd March 6 1894.
I have only seen one base like this in twenty years (And it was only the base) and have never seen this model with the original drawing top and side arm with the box!
The top measures 48 x 37 inches. The table both tilts and adjusts up and down. The lowest position is 33.5 inches and the tallest is about 40.5 inches tall. The table tilts to a full 90 degrees for easy storage is space is a concern.
The top opens to expose a solid oak drawer underneath that opens with a cast iron latch in the front. The table also has a side drawer that fits in a post on either side of the table and can be easily removed by simply pulling it up to move to the other side or remove.
The metal foot piece in the center bottom is used to adjust the tilt and locks the table in place once you select your desired angle.
I removed and polished all of the hardware on the top part discovering some beautiful original brass hardware as well as beautiful old steel.
I had to restore all of the wood do to the condition when I received it but I left all of the original paint on the base and just simply cleaned the metal with a mild soap and water. All of the wood was triple sanded, tacked, wood conditioned, stained and sealed with two coats of poly.
This table is really unique and beautiful.

I will break the table down and ship in either two or three separate containers. I will either use Fedex or Greyhound. If I use Greyhound you will need to pick the items up at your nearest terminal. Greyhound typically saves money in shipping costs.
