The client emailed me asking if I could make a side table for him and I said yes. I asked if he had an idea/design in mind.

He came to me with a sketch and told me a friend of his is a cabinet maker and made this out of a solid piece of wood….a tree stump. With the sketch and story of his friend, I Googled ‘side table with slot’ or something similar. Found the picture (eventually) and showed him, asked if that was what he meant.

“WOW!!! YES!!! That’s it exactly” was what he said. He said “I know it’s going to be expensive so just let me know and let me know if you can do it and a general time frame”

Emailed a local store because I had no idea what I would even ask for a price.

My design? Nope.
Can I do it? Yup.

So, would you say “I won’t do this for you. I’d rather you go to ‘this store and pay $1500 for it. Have a nice day”
