Pictured below (photo 1) is a Heywood-Wakefield end table purchased by my wife, Cathy, at a local auction. I found it interesting that it has a hinged top for storing items inside the end table. Usually end tables will have a drawer built into the side of the end table for storing stuff.
If you have an interest in Heywood-Wakefield furniture, then check out the following 28 end table photos, three sketches (with partial dimensions), and links to nine scaled photos (using SketchUp).
But before looking at the rest of the photos, sketches, and scaled photos — who is Heywood-Wakefield?
Heywood-Wakefield started out as two separate furniture companies. Heywood was established in 1826 and the company name at that time was Heywood Brothers, and the Wakefield company dates back to 1855.
Heywood and Wakefield merged in 1897 and took the name Heywood Brothers & Wakefield Company (that’s a mouthful).
In 1921, the company name was changed to the Heywood-Wakefield company. Therefore, looking at photo 2 below, this end table dates back no further than 1921.
And, here are the rest of the end table photos that I took. Included are photos of the end table taken from the front, sides, top, bottom, and various close-up shots.
The end table sitting on the ottoman looks weird (I know), but it gave me a good height for taking straight-on photos and I liked the light level conditions in the living room here.
The straight-on shots will be needed later on in this post; I will be importing some of the photos into SketchUp and rescaling the photos.
The following three rough-sketches provide partial dimensional data for the end table.
You can find SketchUp files of nine of the photos shown earlier in this post at the following links. These links will take you to the 3D Warehouse where I have shared the sketches.
Before you click over to the 3D Warehouse, I only took a limited number of dimensions for the end table; since I plan to import some of the photos into SketchUp and rescale the photos to actual size – using dimensions from the three sketches shown above.
Oh, one more thing, the scaled photos are not perfect. However, the scaled photos will allow you to use the SketchUp “Tape Measure Tool” to get reasonably close to the actual dimensions. In short, the scaled photos will enable you to get a feel for the approximate dimensions and proportions between the various parts of the end table.
And, here are the links:
For more information on using SketchUp to import and resize photos, check out the following link, which will take you to a post I did on importing and resizing photos.
I hope you enjoyed the end table photos, sketches, and rescaled photos. You know, I always like looking at how others build furniture; I bet you do also.
