To me, your price seems very low. I would be probably double that. Of course it also depends on how detailed and well built the piece is. I am not a professional but I do custom pieces for people and I can’t see how I could build and finish a piece like that in just a day. The top would be easy and the pipe legs as well, but the drawers if built well would definitely take me some time.

As an aside, I also live in Cincinnati and know the market here moderately well. As in other markets there are is a big part of the population that thinks because you build it at home it will be cheaper than the box stores. I have had a number of people ask me to build something like they have in Ethan Allen (on the high end) and Ikea (on the low end) and my price is always higher- it just doesn’t compare in the end product.
