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 $5,000. Most end tables and coffee tables will cost between $50-$500, a desk is around $500-$1000, and materials for a dining tables can cost $2,000+.
Our dining wood epoxy resin table costs between $3,125-$7,300, depending on several factors. We’ll go over those factors in the next section.
Factors Influencing Wood Epoxy Resin Table Prices
Several factors influence the final cost of your wood epoxy table. In this next section, we’re going to go over each one. Keep in mind that we use only the highest quality materials available to us in Pennsylvania.
Our team of woodworkers spends hours working on your wood epoxy table, from hand sanding to finishing your table. So, we need to take into account the time that they put into creating your one-of-a-kind table. The cost of labor is added to the final price of your wood epoxy table.
Epoxy resin is expensive: it can cost over $100 a gallon. So, a wood epoxy table can be costly because of the amount of epoxy and labor to make it. Polyurethane is an alternative that makes a great finish for your wood table that’s not epoxy. It gives the wood of your table the same glow as epoxy would and will still last you for years to come. A dining table can easily use 10 gallons or more -- and if it's your first time you have to hope that there's no mistakes with your pour or it could cost you another 10 gallons.
Size of Table
We offer a range of sizes for your wood epoxy table. The smallest is 30” x 60” and the largest standard size being 42” x 96”. We've made tables 60" wide and 16' long. If we don’t offer the size that you need, you can contact us to see if we can create a custom wood epoxy table for you.
Type of Wood
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. Here's an example of one of our walnut-based tables:
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.
Flattening a live edge wood slab can take anywhere between 1-2.5 hours, depending on the overall size of the wood slab. Sanding the slab can take more than an hour to do because we do it by hand.
Our wood epoxy table is sold with metal bases. We offer a few different shapes and metal types that cost anywhere between $400-$1250. The metal types we offer include steel, cast aluminum, and cast-iron base options. The leg shapes that you can choose include U-Shaped, H-Shaped, A-Shaped, and Diamond X-Shaped.
Delivery Fees and Taxes
Taxes vary on which state you’re in. Here in Pennsylvania, we charge a 6 percent sales tax on our live edge wood epoxy table. Shipping also plays a part in the final cost of your wood epoxy table.
We ship any table under 120 pounds and 7’ long via FedEx, USPS, and UPS, and the shipping price is included in the price of your order. However, since most epoxy tables don’t meet that criterion, we will arrange for a freight company to ship your wood epoxy table to you, which means there’s an upcharge that you must pay.
We also offer a white-glove service for an additional fee. We can give you a shipping quote for tables that exceed the shipping requirements for FedEx, USPS, and UPS; you only need to ask us.
