Ran across an article in “The Pursuit of Mastery” while out on our ‘date night’ at Barnes & Noble. I think it’s put out by Woodwork magazine. The article is by Richard Jones. I’ve never seen such a great breakdown in how to price a piece of work. A must read for all those crazy enough to “have a go at it”.
In it he goes into detail on each of the major steps that we have to account for.
-Material charges (based on inherent defects of certain materials) and Direct and indirect costs
- Millwork (truing a solid timber) including tidying the shop and time spent for sharpening tools
-Jointery (based on how many joints)
