Let me start by saying that I am extremely new to woodworking, so please excuse my annoying ignorance. So I picked up this end table at an auction for $10, it was in ok shape, but with some love I got looking like this. So I have some questions, does anyone know what era this is from? I have found similar items that say anywhere from 1920’s to 1950’s. Is this something that was mass produced? I am tried looking for any kind of markings like initials or company name and couldn’t find any. My wife and I love cool old stuff, and building cool new stuff.

Welcome to Ljs
I would guess the same as you 20s-50s ,it might me more helpful if you posted a few more photos including the underside,sometimes the construction helps zero in on what vintage a piece is.

My gut tells me it is not an antique but relatively new (less than 30 years) and definitely commercial. It is a mid-century shape but not a minimalist style, so a mish-mash. If you want more information, take better pictures, profile shots, close ups of the inlay, bottom of the table, preferably not sideways or upside down.

HEY…....FOA…........WELCOME TO LUMBERJOCKS.
AND I WOULD SAY 20’S TO 50’S TOO. IT LOOKS LIKE A TRADITIONAL PIECE THAT COULD HAVE BEEN MADE BY LOT OF COMPANIES
CAN YOU TAKE SOME MORE SHOTS OF THE SIDE AND BOTTOM TO SEE THE JOINTS AND IF IT IS VENEERED.
