This one really came out surprisingly well! Unfortunately, the client was about the meanest old man i’ve ever met. Had very little access to the car, so taking measurements was critical. I guess I’m used to working with 100% wood, maybe a bit of brass or brushed nickel here and there as accent, so trying to work in some extras was interesting. The guidelines I was given were as follows-” I want two cupholders and a change tray. Oh, and my wife doesn’t like right angles, so no corners.” Simple, huh? I did get to take a good bit of “creative license” that way, but I have to say, no corners? Really?? It took a round-over bit, a chainsaw, and a helluva lot of sandpaper, but I think it came out well. Did manage to cut my own throat again price-wise though, surprise surprise! Quoted him $175, hoping for more business from the car club, had $60+ in materials. So after all was said and done, figure I raked in around 3 bucks an hour. Oh well, we don’t do it for the money, do we!!!
