I have a record of time for different projects I have completed. Broken down into different processes. Milling, glue-up, face-frames, legs, tops, sanding, finish, hardware, drawers, ect. I can pretty accuratly guess my hours based on these. I suffer when I have to go into a design or learning mode. What should take an hour can stretch into days. My first table and chair set, 80 hours, my second 32 hours. Estimating material is easy compared to figuring labor.
