What value would I put on it? None. It’s just not my cup of tea.

Is this one of your projects or are you selling something someone else made? Looks like the wood was painted. Painted wood makes me itchy.

$2800? Looks like it has nothing behind the desk. Location can change that price dramatically. looks like 18’ long?

Without knowing size, materials, or, as pointed out by mahdee, location, any number you get would be a SWAG. I’ll put in for $3500, if it’s made with decent materials.

Wow ok , nah it was a project we did thought we got low balled , considering it took 30 hrs to complete , they wanted all covered in mica with stone topper and we did deliver and install another 8hrs since it was 2 hrs away. From ny to north jersey , it was 10’x5’x5’

Whether you got low balled on price or not, the real question should be did you make a profit on the project.
That is always the most important question. If you got a very high price for the desk and not make any money on it is worse than getting a low price and make a small profit.

So your question should be answered by yourself as to whether you made any money or not.
Did you?

We priced it at 5400 with out of state delivery and installation we just spent too much on labor to expedite it and the gc still has a balance so no profit yet,

So, is that a place people go to smoke a joint or a chiropractic office?

I think pricing would depend on location too. I’d go 2k non metropolitan area. Saw nothing special about materials. Urban area 4k.

Top in the picture looks like Formica and Corian, maybe someone else bid it that way. Wouldn’t be the first time someone cheated a bid.
