I’ve seen here on LJ from time to time blogs or forum topics discussing how to price your work. Some very good discussions have come about and bantered back and forth. Some have more guesswork than others, but most are very informative.
After seeing different pieces posted here on LJ and elsewhere, I often just want to ask the artist or woodworker how much the piece is priced for, or what it sold for. But I consider that sorta rude. Maybe there’s an alternative.
I thought I would experiment here with a blog to provide both speculation and sometimes actuality as to the aspect of ‘pricing your work’.
I’ll organize this area at the top as sort of a summary and update the speculated price as I have time. If the builder wishes to reveal the actual price they have on the piece or what it actually sold for, then I’ll update that too. Although it might be good to wait on that reveal until the speculation has died down for that piece. If it doesn’t get too complicated I might try to organize links to the discussion of each piece as well.
Each piece will be numbered. If you want to add a piece, then just take the next available number. They can be your pieces, or other’s pieces.
To guess on a price, just include the project number and price as follows:
#49 $200 – Feel free to also provide comments regarding aspects that influenced your guess or why you priced a piece the way you did.

(Add a project below and I’ll update it here.)
