Price your work at what you need to get to make
the business of making things worthwhile. You can
get paid what a plumber gets to do woodworking,
but you have to be a good marketer to get that
and you have to know what you can and can’t
make money at. Original designs consume a lot of
time to protoype, but if they become salable portfolio
items and you have the jigs and templates they
can be assets.

Only the affluent are accustomed to paying for
real craftsmanship. Some non-affluent people know
what such things should cost because they have
skills or know somebody well in the trade.
