David Fisher, a black inventor who invented a device to hold furniture together

A variety of chairs and desks

Imagine a house with no furniture!It’s kinda half empty.
We need it to be comfortable at all times. Sometimes ,I myself,
have slept on the floor and it was more comfortable than
a bed. It wasn’t hard wooden floor and it had carpet.
But when you want to drift off in your living room, the most
ideal piece of furniture to sleep on is a couch right? Home should be
a place of rest and tranquility (peace). So what kinda
furniture do you want? Lazyboy? Couch? Whatever it is, get
it and make your house a part of your personality. Since,
we’re on the topic of furniture, I had to point out a
remarkable person whose invention deals with furniture.

Vanity set

David Fisher, a black inventor,created
a device that holds furniture parts together. His device
came in handy because originally, a worker had to work in slow steps,
pausing at different times to combine pieces of wood together
so one could bind them. Fisher fixed the delay in the process
by coming up with the joiner’s clamp, which he patented
on April 20, 1875.

The joiner’s clamp involved two pieces of wood attached
by two screws. When they were tightened, the screws pushed
the pieces of wood together. He used this device to hold
furniture parts in place as they were glued. Therefore, the
worker didn’t have to continue assembling them. By using
applied, balance pressure, the joiner’s clamp caused
the wood to come together at a faster pace and stronger than

Another struggle in the furniture business was workers
in the furniture industry having to move heavy pieces of
furniture. Also, they had to be safe in the process.
They worried about dropping furniture and destroying other
items in the room by bumping into them. So, on March 14,
1876, Fisher patented the furniture caster. This complex
device was a free turning wheel that allows heavy items
to move around a room on rollers, safely and efficiently
as well. This allowed one person to move large pieces of
furniture, which let other workers be able to take care of other
items. This device is found throughout every industry as
well as homes all around.

Glass Table and chairs

Now, thanks to David Fisher, you can lay peacefully
and rested. You can have exotic colors, light colors,
or blend dark and light colors. Some people have to have
furniture in order to be comfortable or they’ll feel a sense of
unrest. The goal, though, is to get you rested. I think
of it like this “A restless mind or body can slow down
the day”. I’m also looking for convenience in things
because life doesn’t have to be so difficult. There
are times where we can curtail things or speed it up
and make it more effective. Let’s be inventive and
stay inventive. Fisher is a true asset to the furniture
industry,especially home owners and those who rent their

I will leave you all with this “A great invention
is like a great meal, digest it and put it to
great use”.
