can you help identify the buffet table i am about to describe below? - This buffet table has one long drawer for table cloths and silverware that opens over 3 doors on the bottom. it is all wood and the handles are wooden as well. It has designs that are hand carved in between the top drawer and the 3 doors on the bottom.This piece of furniture as my grand father remembers it was bought new around 1948 . where can i find more information about this piece I have looked everywhere I can think of and have not found anyone who is familiar with it. is there someone i could send a picture to that may have knowledge of this particular piece?

DO tell me where this AMAZING table came from!

An iron balcony railing from a local salvage yard became the base for an outdoor serving table. "I love to find an architectural feature and use it another way," Cohan says. "Using something like iron is a way to add patina to a project that might be brand new; it gives it some history and warmth you just cannot find in new materials." The tabletop is a custom-cut slab of bluestone. It now serves as a spot for a buffet or bar, and can also serve as a potting bench.Cohan had the artisans at Recycling the Past build it out, adding new legs to the railing to balance and support the heavy top. The table base, including the new legs, plus labor was $400. The custom-cut bluestone top was $200.
