With all the mesmerizing posts on Pinterest and Instagram about wood epoxy tables, it can be tempting to make one yourself. One of the first things you’ve probably noticed while looking at epoxy tables is the price. You might think that they’re overpriced for a table, but if you look into making your epoxy table, you’ll quickly realize how things can add up.
How much does it cost to build a wood epoxy river table? Depending on the size of the wood epoxy table you want to create, it can cost you anywhere between $50 to $3,000. Most end tables and coffee tables will cost between $50-$200, a desk is around $200-$500, and dining tables can cost $500+.
There are some live edge slabs of wood that cost more than other types. Some of the more expensive types of live edge slabs of wood that you can purchase include white oak, cherry, maple, and walnut. Some of the cheaper types of wood include pine-oak, red oak, hickory, sycamore, and ash.
When you buy live edge slabs, you’ll generally pay per board foot based on the rough cut of the live edge wood slab size. Then we charge a flat rate for the time it takes to hand sand and flatten the live edge slab. This flat rate is built into the final price of the table.
