Topic tags/keywords: maple question

I’m thinking of posting a listing on craigslist to sell a solid maple top workbench. It was originally an electronics assembly bench. The top measures 34” x 72” x 1 3/4”. I was thinking of asking $200, but wanted to get your guys/gals opinion of that price point.

Price is based on new benchtops sold at Woodcraft minus a few dollars based on it not being new.

Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

Here’s the picture of the bench:

That might be a little high, but you can always lower the price later if it doesn’t get any interest, right?

Not sure about the price – but I would definitely post a picture that does not have all the other stuff on top. That will help make it look like a better buy.
