Expandable Dining Table

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.

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.

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

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.

Loved finding this site! I have something similar that I grew up with in the 1950's and am down sizing so would appreciate help with value or offers! I am just outside Tulsa, OK. It appears to be cherry wood and finish although finish is showing some wear in areas. It is a telescoping buffet table 62"W x 20.5D x 30.75T. Table width is 40" with one 12" built in leaf and 5 addt'l 12" leafs. The middle false drawer that pulls out to extend the table is flanked on either side by 10.5" drawers. The middle shelf has a 32" real drawer flanked on either side by 10.5" drawers and then the bottom shelf. Have not been able to locate any manufacturer but my Mom bought all of the household furniture at Hanna's of Brookside in Tulsa which was 'the' place go back in the day. Any thoughts? Appreciate it!
