Not sure why you don't see it but I can see the web picture and I have uploaded it for you-

I think you are looking at a "one off" piece made by a craftsman of that day. Finding him (her) may require a genealogy search. 

 

 we both lack the ability to see this table first hand.  just these 2 pics to work off of.

 

it's dusty, and likely very dry wood.  those are easy to fix.  but when you get into taking things apart, you don't know what you are getting yourself into.  best case, you clean a few joints, re-glue them, and all is well.  worst case, it comes apart and you have a pile of interesting looking parts.

 

i'd clean it up.  if it's in sound condition (tight joints, no missing structural pieces), us it in some manner.  if not, find some information on what it would take to fix it up.  time, money.  you may find that you are now spending $500 on a $40 table.  that's not wise.  we should be good stewards of what we have, time and resources (that's why we all have overly large scrap piles - it might be useful someday), and not do foolish things (like build a feed trough for a horse out of ebony or fiddleback maple).

 

it's a neat piece, enjoy it.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
