There's a big difference between the cheap tables mass produced in a factory and a custom made table. The factory makes them efficiently and therefore has lower labor costs. One-of-a-kind, custom tables take a lot of labor, and if you're going to spend that time and/or money, you want good materials and a design giving you a table that's going to last, hopefully, a lifetime. I was looking at the BGE tables and the planks are stapled on, design was slightly flimsy in my opinion, and it was about what I expected it to be for the price.I built my table right - with floating tenon joinery, epoxy, expansion sliders, etc. Took me probably 50 hours, and I have professional tools. Of course, I had fun doing it, drank and I watched a bunch of games through the construction so I wasn't as efficient as I could have been....
My dad and I built 2 tables from NakedWhiz.com plans in 7 hours. Another 3 hours for finishing. Cost of materials for each table $200. Good construction, perfect, no, but good.
Here I am trying to source some redwood as nobody carry any hereabouts.
I like the way they look on other eggheads that have built them.
Large and Small BGE, and a baby black Kub.
And all the toys to make me look like a Gizmo Chef.
I would be interested in building you a table and discussing a price.Take a look at mine and see if you like it.I'm not a pro but do decent work.If you have a great idea for a table that would be an option.It doesn't have to have three shelves.Can make it for more than one egg or the ability to add another egg.
Here's another link for ideas.
Should take about a couple of weeks. High quality cerdar ( from a lumber yard..not Lowes or Home Depot.) 3 coats of spar varnish.Castors from Castor City
I'm just south of Denver.

As a cabinetmaker and builder for over 30 years, I would think a table for an egg costing 200.00 would make you run away.
As everyone said here, there are so many variables. To ask how much a table for an egg should cost is like asking how blue should the sky be?
Look for quality construction and quality materials. It can be done without having to sell the farm in order to pay for it.
Not to be outdone the doc replied, "Tell the mechanics to try doing a valve job with the engine running". You get what you pay for.
