This invention relates to a new and useful
process and product thereof, and the principal

andshowing the prongs on its bottom edge that
are -driven into the perforated side of the backing.
Fig. 9 is a side view of one of the thin spacing
bars or strips used in forming ornamental de
“ mercial articles, such
panels, borders, moldings, pedestals, and sup
ports for use in manufacturing furniture, build
ings and for ornamenting houses and the like.
With the foregoing objects in view, I form a
wooden backing for each article that is faced
with lacquer or self-hardening plastic or semi
plastic material that may be colored, tinted and
clouded with variegated colors and which, when
dried and hardened, may be polished to a finish,
resembling the smooth glaze of porcelain.

appear in the polished surfaces, that are formed
of metal bars, fixtures and the like that are first
secured in the backings so they form cavities and

of three-ply veneer.

with the tops and edges of the metal parts, so
the Ametal exposed, will be polished when the

ground down until they are substantially smooth
and level with the metal edges, after which the
top and edges, together with the exposed metal
edges of the channel irons, are highly polished.

and also filling the channel around the edges of

When so arranged, they form channels between
and around them within the trough formed by
the edge frame.
It is obvious that the space in the channels
and around the fixtures _may be filled with a lac
quer or self-hardening plastic or semi-plastic ma
terial which, when dry may be polished, together
with the exposed edges of the Ybars and ends of
the excess material so ` Y is level with the edge of
said frame and flanges of said channel, then dry

_surfaces of said dried material together with
the exposed edges of said frame.

¿ Instead of forming the flexible strips with ing the channel in- the channel frame with the
prongs on their lower edges fand driving said plastic material, then removingv the excess ma
prongs into the backing member, the latter may
be provided with grooves, as designated by Illa,

grooves with the upperportions of said strips

VIt is obvious that practically all exposed parts
of a piece of furniture'or other structure may be
formed by my improved process.

improved process, is compounded so it may be
colored and clouded in delicate tints and tones
suitable for obtaining >highly artistic effects when
used in vfurnishing bathrooms, kitchen cabinets,

Vïhile I have shown and described one practi
cal way of practicing my» improved method, it
45 will be understood that said method may be varied
slightly in details, Without departing from the
spirit of my invention, the scope Yof which is set
forth in thc appended claims.V
I claim as my invention:
' 1. The herein described process. of forming
¿commercial articles, consistingV of ñrstrmaking
a wooden backing and forming recesses in one
facethereof, then securing a channel frame to
the edges of said backing so a trough is formed

and flanges of thefchannel iron,"then drying Ythe
material and then polishing the exposed surfaces
3. The herein described process of forming col
ored commercial articles consisting of iirst mak
ing a wooden backing and forming recesses inY
one face thereof, then >securing a channelk iron
frame to the edges of said backing, so a shallow
trough is formed on its: recessed side and also so
that the flanges of said iron are extended out
Wardly to form a channelaround said frame, then
forming a design in said trough by securing
straight, curved and coiled stripsand .fixtures to
said backing in a pre-arranged order to delineate
the design and form spaces between and around
said strips. and fixtures, then delivering and Vpress
ing a self-hardening plastic or semi-plastic ma
terial into the trough to ñll the spaces between
said strips and »around said fixtures and also ñll
ing the channel in the frame'with said material,
then striking off the 'excess material to level it
down to the edges' of the frame and flanges of
and j
the channel iron, then drying the material
then polishing the exposed surfaces thereof.’>
