here is a picture of my log cabin inspired wormy butter nut dinning table with live edge aromatic cedar bread board ends
the 1st pic is a view of the completed table 2nd pic shows the worm wholes in the top 3rd is a pic of the cedar log legs 4th pic is a pic of the live edge and 2nd leg view and 5th pic is a side view of the completed table

the table top was made using kreg screws and glue and the bread boards ends were attached in the same manner the bread board ends were sawed from one single piece of thick cedar i tried to book math them ,the top and table legs were finished with 2 coats of a antique oil finish and a coat of gloss Polly i used cleats to attach the top from the under side this table is being donated to new habitat for humanity home owners in groton ny

one question for other fellow lumber jocks do you think 325.00 is a fair price to ask if i was going to sell this i would welcome your thoughts hope you all enjoy

$325 sounds cheap to me. How many hours of labor do you have in this? Not to mention the materials. People will pay $500 easily for a dining room table made from veneered MDF board that will turn to trash in 4 years. I’m sure someone will pay more for an item made of solid wood that will last 100 years.

Some things to consider:
1. Is it built to last? I’ve never used Kreg screws and I’m not sure how durable they are over the long run.
2. Are the breadboard ends done correctly. Will they allow movement of the table top without cracking?

If the answer to these is “Yes”, then I feel the table is worth at least $500. Don’t sell your labor for free.
