Made this for a co-worker. She wanted something for her front yard porch. Her only request was a place to put her beer, cell phone, ash tray and cigs. I think she’ll her plenty of room. I have no plans just started with 22 inch seats and worked my way out. Next project will have a built-in ice chest.

I now have a lot of friends wanting one now. I would like to know how to price them? Double the cost of materials or go with the local market?

thanks for looking

John

The first one is always the hardest for me. Take good notes. Try to estimate how long it will take you to make a second one. Is it just for funzies? This could turn into work before you know it. That looks really nice.

Agreed. That’s awfully pretty. You’ve got me wondering if I shouldn’t make a couple singles for my front with wide arms for ash trays and such. Me and “the guys” sit there and smoke cigars and drink whiskey we can’t afford. It’d be nice to not have to lean all over the place withour bad backs to reach the ash tray ;-)

Might be a bit beyond my skills at this point. But hey, that’s why to try.

Nicely done.

Very cool and well done. Pricing is alwas tricky but dont work for free. Make it where you feel comfy doing them.
