I finally figured out how to make a nice sturdy and comfortable bench. I have made a few of these but this one really came out nice. I am thinking of selling these for around $200.00, what do you all think? Price to high or to low, your feed back is important to me LBJ family. Thanks

Quick update, I took the bench to my local convenient store, in a town of 400 that’s a prime location. We made a plaque for it and basically using it as a sitting billboard. I think if people can see it and sit on it will make them more incline to look more and buy more of our products. They have a local bulletin board, bud the local competition seems to make my add’s disappear.
It’s a small price to pay for a 150 lbs advertisement LOL

Very beautiful this bench in a rustic style, I like the grain of the
wood. Compliments.

Beautiful work. In my area, that would be a decent price.

Beautiful bench. I really like the legs with the mix of colours. I think your pricing is very reasonable.

I like the bench. I have started using this for pricing:
Materials + Labor + Expenses + Profit = Wholesale x 2 = Retail

That’s gorgeous but I think the price is a little too low, at least in my market. I’m pretty sure that would fetch $300 in NJ or the Philly market.

Nice work.

The price of $200 is not unreasonable for this high quality and durable work it will still be around in 300 years if kept right and $200 does not buy much these days.well done Alistair

Todd, I like the bench sir…. we visited a craftsman fair while on our mini-escape over the past couple of days…based on the pricing we saw on simular items, you are coming in a wee bit on the low end of the price range. If you can justify selling at the price you set, should be able to sell a goodly amount of these babies. Good build buddy
