What would you pay for this? - 20 replies

I built this hall table last summer but I have decided to part with it. Or at least attempt to sell it. I know what I have into for materials and time. But I’m sure this a question that every amateur woodworker asks themselves when valuing a piece. So the question is, what would you value this at?
