Yeah, sometimes its hard to ask, but lets face it. Its their piece they ordered and your time. If they back out you don’t lose on material costs if they cover at least the wood. Personally I work out the total cost and ask for 50% every time When the piece is ready for finishing(in particular a stained piece) I ask for another 20% before staining and finishing. That way you are pretty much covered if they don’t cough up, leaves it open for a finish to suit someone else.
