Heres some designs Ive come up with for creating projects out of 8”x8” pine.
My plan is to start building them for the summer, and hopefully sell some before then!
Ive come up with a price of $6 – $8 a board foot, which covers labour and materials.
Please let me know what you think! any suggestions or compliments would be appreciated!

Cool designs. They look pretty heavy but I think that is the look you want. On the price, you should build one to see what you run into and then price it accordingly.

I like the looks of the table in the third picture the best!

cheers, Jim

hey Jim!
Thanks for the comment! Heavy is definitely what I am going for. An old boss built everything way oversized, and I really liked it! Unnecessary, but beautiful!
