I picked this buffet up from the yearly trash pickup they have in town. Seen it was old, got it for my daughter she thought it was neat. After getting it home and in the shop it was ruff someone attempted to refinish it. The veneering was coming loose and it had worm damage. I putt a top made of some discarded cherry it was short so I added a bread board edge to it, made of walnut. built two drawers and rebuilt the lower drawers. polyed it and she is really happy to own it. After having it around awhile I finally finished it.

I don’t believe it was a table. I think it was a side board at one time. the top that was on this piece had worm damage and was falling apart. I used as much as I could of it to rebuild the drawers. the top on it now was made from some discarded cherry from a guy I work with.
Thanks for your comment
