Yeah, watching this, all I could imagine was a voice over a speaker instructing her: "Now expand the table. Now collapse it again. Now expand it ... collapse it ... expaaUUUUUGNHHH! Okay, you may go now."

What brave new world that has such tables in'it!

,000-,000, depending on options. There's a motorized remote control version. A DB Fletcher tech will fly from the UK to assemble your table upon delivery.
Why am I putting so much effort into learning luthiery when furniture that takes less work to build can easily sell for five times what I'd expect to get for a good solid guitar?
This thing is awesome and the wood and workmanship look really nice but I'd have guessed -k tops.
Holy shit, no way. Just no. I love this table, but it isn't worth more than 00 tops. What a ridiculously arrogant furniture company, it's a fucking table.
On the DB Fletcher website, this table is generally shown mounted on the deck of 150 ft (or larger) yachts, with all stainless hardware and teak/mahogany wood. k is chicken feed compared to the price of the other yacht fittings. This table is not for your McMansion.
Rich people have no concept of value and are easy prey for craftsmen.
What memedumpster said, but even with that in mind I'd guess way less than what it's going for. Assuming it's mostly handmade (truly hand made I mean, with hand tools) k wouldn't be out of the realm of normal. If that's solid wood and not veneer, the materials alone probably cost more than 00.
I mean, I think real craftsmanship is actually about the most valuable thing there is in an object, and I still think this thing isn't worth nearly as much as it costs.
The customers for this are like the rich people who pay -40k for a 1950s Fender, they're paying for an idea because there is nothing about the craftsmanship or materials that come close to justifying the price.

That poor lady. OCD must be a motherfucker.

Also, I wouldn't kid myself - I know once I put a table somewhere, it's only going to stay in one position until I die or have to move again or a good tornado comes and takes it all away.

That would be a badass prop in a fantasy movie.

Does remind me of the custom gaming tables sold at conventions.
Yeah, but they just have hidden compartments.
Also, looking at those, I'd almost think it'd be cooler/cheaper to just retrofit a used craps or roulette table.

That's fucking awesome, but not ,000 awesome.

All I see is a device built to pinch your fingers.
Sanest Man Alive
Yeah, I kinda hope this is just a prototype, because that resetting motion seems designed to cost you a thumb at least.

The redneck / Red Green in me wants to build one of these out of plywood and PVC.

It's a great way to mangle your fingers.
