Had a client the other day ask me to build 2 footstools out of oak. I told her the price would be $15.00 for one. She hemmed and hawed then said it was too high. I should have said “then I can’t do it” Instead I said how does 10 dollars a piece for 2 sound. She then said that was a deal.
Moral of the story is price the wood before I give a price. I paid 35 dollars for a 96 1/2 inch long piece that was 10 3/4 wide. Lesson learned.
Even Jockmike2 told me I was way underpriced. Should have listen to the man. Oh well it won’t happen again.
