How Much Will A Custom Table Cost?

Apr 14, 2024

The main factors that impact the cost of a custom wood table include:

Wood type and quality: The type of wood used, such as oak, maple, walnut, etc. will significantly affect the price. Higher-end hardwoods like black walnut tend to be more expensive than domestic woods like maple or oak. Also, the market price for wood fluctuates. We do keep some wood and slabs in our barn and try to buy when prices are lower, we turn these savings over to our customers whenever we can.

Finishing and detailing: The type of finish, edge profile, and any added details like inlays, epoxy or live edges will add to the overall cost.

Table size and complexity: Larger tables with more detailed designs and features will generally cost more due to the increased materials and labor required.

Construction methods and joinery: Tables made with more complex joinery like mortise and tenon or dovetails will be more expensive than basic construction.

Custom hardware: Special hardware, metal base, leveling feet, or expansion mechanisms can increase the budget.    

Delivery costs for the table: We try to deliver and set up locally ourselves whenever possible in order to lower your cost. If you are not local, we will hire a moving service to deliver the table to you and incorporate these fees into your table cost.

A budget for a custom dining table made from domestic hardwood usually starts in the $3500 range and goes up from there depending on customization. 

More elaborate, slabs or larger tables could easily cost $7,500 or more.

Our smaller furniture items, benches, hallway tables, coffee tables and side tables typically run in the $300 to $2500 range.

Our stock items that we typically sell at local markets such as cutting boards and counter boards usually priced in the $50 to $500 range.

Careful planning and material selection are key to staying within your desired budget.
