That is a beautiful table you have there but to be honest $800 seems awful cheap. The work and quality I am seeing is worth at least twice as much. Kudo's.
I'll probably do starting at $800 with no drawer.
I love the result, but mostly I like your shop organization. Anything you need, just there, grab'em.
That's called having a 1 year old and a 4 year old.... I get 5 minutes here, a half hour there. No time to do any kind of real clean up.
My work area looks like that and I have no kids at home any more
My hero! Lol
My revised Ad. The version with the drawer will be $1,200. I still want to come in well below the competition. The front edge on the $800 version can easily be pocketed to look like a tape bottom on the x-carve.
Looks good Phil...
You should offer an 8-track one as well... (and a circular CD table as well...)
It wasn't objection, it was compliment. Some times takes me travel all the way to other end of the shop for simple heat gun. But your shop made that easy, just there on the floor pick it up. Any way. This is the awesome result. That's perfection. Love it three times. Maybe a little metal color paint touch up to screws.
Custom label: $200 extra. (20 character maximum.)
Then I cost as much as the competition. At my price I'm still making over $40 an hour after my cost.
Phil what's on the flip side? lol
.... the bottom of the drawer lol
its got auto reverse.... looks great Phil. Im working away from home, I miss my beloved X-carve
Where is your competition being made? Are they using the quality of materials that you are? Is the inlay label anything close to the level you're doing it at? Are they even capable of offering a custom label?
The company is call Taybles. They use birch hardwood stainded. Not sure if it's plywood or solid wood. But if mine is cheaper and uses better materials, I should have an big advantage. That's what I want. I don't want to be close to the same. I want to stick out.
This has also started an entire line of coffee tables for me including NES style controller (no branding), giant battleship table, and giant cribbage board table.
I don't say this to a guy often, but I like your legs better
It also looks like they use a printed label whereas yours is all inlay. They might technically be more accurate, but yours is WAY more fancy woodworking.
Cool stuff Phil. Did you consider making the label something that the owner could custom write and change for the mood, company, party, etc? I homeschool and I got my 4'x8' dry erase board from Home Depot. They have a smaller board too.
How about one of these! But it actually works. I can do the electronics!
