The primary object of the'present invention

is to provide a table having an‘ ironing board

Another object of the invention is to provide
a combined table and ironing board in which the
table is provided with a slidable leaf portion
which, when moved in- one‘ position,‘ uncovers a

A still further object of the invention is to within the housing’ 6 and it is normally under ‘

will automatically move laterally‘ in ‘the plane of

The invention will be best understood from a
