I made the 416 sign for my house, my darling wife wanted me to carve some flowers on it and my son-in-law liked it so much he wanted one for his house. Now I have to make one for my next door neighbor.

Hmmmm, how much can I charge people to make these things. The logs were free, I had to cut them with my chainsaw, the legs were free, I re-sawed them from some old 4X4s to 3X#s. The only items purchased were the lag bolts, washers, paint and clear polyurethane. Then there’s my time.

My darling wife suggested $50.00 each. What do you guys think?

I make similar items and sell them for between $40 and $60 – so that sounds right on!

I like the style of yours. And, they look really easy to read from the street – which is so important for house signs!
