 I'm not going to rely on rented furniture any more [long story], so I want to make my own for the next one I host. What sort of prices did you pay for the chairs, and where did you get them from? And how much roughly did the tables cost to make?

Thanks

Yes I know its a strange question :P

 I need to make some tables for the next LAN I host, as well. I saw plans for building a simple table here: http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/rm_furniture_other/article/0,1797,HGTV_3717_1381667,00.html' target='_blank'>http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/rm_furniture_othe...1381667,00.html

Looks cheap and chearful... maybe I can finally put my 20% staff discount card for Homebase to good use :blink:

 That's actually pretty clever. Hollow doors are very cheap, and you can take them apart when you're done :)

 We had a very similar concept of table at the old LANSE venue, they worked out pretty neat because they fold away to nearly no space...

Go for it mate!

 The 25 quid jason quoted is to seat 4people  BTW.

The design ment 4 legs per 4 people, considerably keeping the cost down.

Building two seater tables was only about 2 quid cheaper than a 4 seater.
So costs would have been 36 quid to seat 4 people.

Me and jason REALLY REALLY reserched this.  
Any kinda specialize kit like that Sawhorse bracket is gona hike your costs considerably.

The lanse tables are possible storable. The legs can be detached via a large bolt. The subframe remaining screwed to the table top. With a little redesigning they could be made quicker to store.
