Identifying a Table

Anyone have an idea of what this table is, or its value? Someone mentioned a butcher's block table. It is very solid and very heavy.

To me this looks like someone built it himself or herself. If a company did it, you would find identifying markings inside a drawer, underneath or on the back. I cannot see it being worth more than $50

Can you post a photo or describe the back and show the other side? also a photo with the doors open? Are there any metal rails in their that would have held bins? I see some metal at the corners that leads me to believe this is something industrial...perhaps from a bakery or print shop or drafter's office. I would like to see the rest of the construction.

It also appears that locks were popped out from the cabinets on back of the doors are there any markings--like screw holes or such? The numbering also leads me to believe industrial also, as does the long, narrow, yet deep storage pockets. These could have held baking sheets and rolling pins and the bins supplies--although they typically would not have been locked--unless it was in a general store setting.

Even if I can help you figure out what it is...which I may with more info, valuing it is going to be a challenge because since it is clearly part of a whole, it would be a one of a kind piece since I believe it to be a piece of something larger.

Once I have more info, maybe we can find a whole one of them then figure out what a piece is worth.

A close up of those metal things at the corners would be helpful so I can see which way they are supposed to go.

I love a good mystery! Thanks for sharing!

I believe it is entirely too dirty to have been used anywhere but in a work shop.
I think what you have is probably a woodworking bench from either a school or a shop.

The 2 holes in the top probably held a vise to clamp whatever they were working on. The overhang is typical of woodworking benches/tables. Also, it looks like it had to be fastened to the floor for stability.

The numbered compartments on the front would be used to store work tools or lockers if used at a school - hence the need for the locks.

This looks like a bench especially built for one part of a shop where something specific was worked on. The tall long slot could have held a template or something similar.

Of course - I could be entirely off base so check it out.

Google woodworking bench or table but mostly what you will find are new renditions. Not too many 'homemade' so if you find out for sure, please let us know.

Sounds like an item for Craigslist (or similar sites) for at least $50 or maybe more to begin with.
