we all have done projects and some were for friends and alot were for family. well there comes a time when we are asked to get something in return from a stranger or not so close friend. so here is a situation. both me and Steve Ash have made a couple of things and we have been asked to do others for some remebursement in the past! we wont go into the past any more than that, but its not all been good or profitable. so here is a project that has been in the past, i have attached 2 pics so you can see what its supposed to look like and i would like to hear your take on how and what to price it at..
ok here are the specs, 46" wide. 19.5 deep ,19" high to the seat lid flat.
materails are red oak- 30Bf....aromatic Red cedar 30Bf,, one 48"continous hinge..finish and consumabils
the bottom is solid red cedar as is the back and the raised panels, no ply wood anywhere.
so to those who do this for a price on occassion or regulary what would you charge and hw do you go about figuring that cost? thanks and i hope this will give the rst of us a idea of what our endeavors are worth vrs the art vans of this country!!!
