Has anyone seen a table like this? Trying to put an actual date on it.

She is slated for our - get a load of this - "BunkAir" our latest idea - when are we ever going to find the time.

Before we bought the new GT-A/S our Bunkie - as we call it - like a little cabin guest house thingy -was slated for a big reno job this spring to be winterized and redecorated into my new office- it has is a rough hemlock white washed walls and a plywood floor - but the outside looks great. I think I mentioned it in another post - can't remember - but we are going to replicate somewhat the inside of a 50's A/S.

Apparently the person who milled and built our house lived in the Bunkie during the contruction stage. Gees hope it was in the 3 seasons or he'd have been pretty darn cold.

Anyway have a look at this table and see if someone can give me an idea of a year.

Thanks - SPK
I found your post while trying to find more chairs to go with my own table...I have no idea what forum I am on, lol...but the table you have pictured is a 1950's table, the formica pattern is called "cracked ice". I live in Portland OR and work in a vintage shop where we sell these types of diner tables quite a bit. Red is the most sought after color, and worh the most. I just bought a gray set (table, leaf and two chairs) for $145.00 and that was a discounted price. We recently sold a red set, 6 chairs, leaf and table all in very good condition for $650.00..and it flew out of the store. That set was the basic common style..what you have looks different and I would guess worth more.
Type in your search engine the words "cracked Ice vinyl or formica" and you will find quite a few sources.

I'm pretty sure the early laminates were made from layers of brown paper impregnated `with resins. You can actually see the layers in a broken piece. The pattterns were just another of the top layers with the clear resins covering it. Probably heated and pressed.

checkered flooring

You caught my eye with the checkered flooring. I am doing the same. Am doin the upholstery in black/white stripes and the counter, backsplash and table top will be stainless.
