Hey Gerry
It’s not always a matter of what you mark up materials and supplies but what the job will pay. As an example you may build a library and your materials may be 10% of your overall amount the customer pays or if you build special boxes that take $100 worth of hardware and wood and your profit may only be 20% of the amount you charge. It really boils down to is what your work is worth and what a customer will pay for said product.
