I'm curious, if you don't mind sharing ... what was your outlay for the project in materials? How many man hours to build? I'd ask you how much you sold it for, but I suppose that's a private matter between you and the buyer. QUOTE]
I don't mind sharing. The total materials cost was about $3800, including materials for the rotisserie structure, cost to hire movers, etc. Total table cost was $7,800. I put in about 150 hours. I did not do it as a time and material job, strictly, which I usually try to do. For instance, I did not expect that designing and building the rotisserie would take about 12 hours, all told. Oh well. In the end, the bottom line is that this is exactly the type of piece that I am in this field for, and I just wanted the chance to build it. The owners were having a big party the day after installation for all of the contractors who'd worked on the new house. Maybe it will even bring me more work down the road.
Regarding the floor vs. table, what you are seeing is more about the quality of my camera. It looks really good in there, and the table will be surrounded by chairs with light colored fabric on the seats and back, which also sets off the wood really well. And they have two chandeliers mounted above the table.
