Seems a little costly for the materials and what it actually is.

I have a hard time justifying the prices of some of the tables and cases out there... seems like people are trying to take advantage of magicians with somw of these items.

You may want to see if you can find a skilled wood worker - for about $40 to $60 in materials and a $50 tip - you can get one made that is just a nice.

The table looks nice but very costly.

Leffler's table is $395 so I don't think this is too bad of a deal comparatively. That being said, I built my own for about $40.

If you can find a good set of plans for a roll-on table, go for it. Have a skilled carpenter build one for you. It will cost you more than just a $50 tip for the labor, unless he is a good friend!

A well-made roll-on table will last you for a very long time. But if you don't know the right kind of casters to get, how to attach them properly, the right woods or other material to use for the case and the frame, you will very likely have a piece of junk on your hands.

This is also true of the right kind of finish.
