$10,000 Dining Table in My Garage – Woodworking Projects

How to make an epoxy dining table. I get a lot of questions about how much my tables cost, and how much it costs to make one. So I’ll put all that info out there in this weeks video! The slab cost $1000, this amount of epoxy retails for just under $1000, a custom base like this one costs $1500, add in another $700 for consumables and shop rental time and that totals $4200 and sold for $10,000 after about 60 hours of work. You can definitely do this cheaper though. Less epoxy and a cheaper base would be a good starting point. But I hope those numbers get you started!
