There is an old woodworker’s story that goes somewhat like this. A guy is in Mexico and comes across a craftsman with a beautiful carved chair. ” How much” says the guy. “Fifty dollars” says the craftsman. On hearing this price the guys ask ” how much for eight chairs like this?” “Three hundred a piece” is the answer. “My gosh!” says the guy. “I thought you only wanted fifty bucks”. “Ah!” says the craftsman, “one is pleasure, eight are work”

Building what YOU want is fun. Building what THEY want is WORK! Charge accordingly.


-- One who works with his hands is a laborer, his hands & head A craftsman, his hands, head & heart a artist
