Expandable Dining Table


Posted By Guest, 8/12/2003

I am looking for a source for an expandable dining room table. It looks like a solid buffet with handles on the front that looks like a drawer. It has double doors below. When the handles are pulled, the table and two legs come out. When you continue to pull, "stringers" continue to come out that support several leaves (which I think are stored behind the doors in the cabinet below). The table can be expanded to seat 12. The friend who bought one over 30 years ago found that it was made by Saginaw Furniture Shops, a division of Warwick Electronics, Inc. in Chicago.

My husband and I just purchased a table that looks like a buffet that expands with 6 leaves in the buffet part. We have no idea how to attach the support legs that came with it. They look to be metal and telescope. Any pictures and instruction would be helpful

If you are still looking for the Expanding Table, please see my very recent submission (on 11-19-12). If you are interested, please e-mail me. By the way, where are you located?

EMail SchaumburgTeacher@gmail.com for a link to a ton of pictures of an expand-o-matic, all original, completely complete (down to every last leaf, peg, & knob) buffet that converts to up to a 9ft dining table. This piece is gorgeous, I just don't have a use for it & know there is someone out there who would use & appreciate it.

I can't post a link on the forums, so please email me for pics & complete details.
I'm in a NW suburb of Chicago.
Thanks!

Hi- I have a saginaw blonde wood "waterfall" buffet table - circa 1960s. (the wood had either 1961 or 1967 stamped into it- **in photo), with 2drawers and two doors in which the table pulls out.

It is in good condition. There a few chipped pieces of wood at the bottom, appears to be from dragging/moving it, some normal wear noted to the wood drawers, but it does expand out. My mother found this antiquing near chicago and is now in my house near houston texas. I have twin toddlers and am single, do not need these type of antiques around, just looking to give it a good home. someone who will appreciate it for the amazing item which it is!!!!!

No chairs, email me for pictures. if you are able to have it shipped or picked up, it is yours for only $400

please email me if interested, i can email photos to you - skydive108@yahoo.com

Hello,
I have a Expandway by Saginaw dining table,game table, hobby table, sewing table or work table. It is in excellent shape. Expands 80" to 110" and will seat 8-12.
It is in a dark mahogany color. It does look like a double door buffet but it pulls out to a table. All the sleeves and center support leg are included. No chairs. I'm located in the St. Louis area and would like to sell it. Pictures are available. Asking 900.00 for the table. If interested please email me at morebaskets@sbcglobal.net.
