Tell him that if he respected you as a friend, he wouldn’t expect you to work for a dime per hour. If he doesn’t understand what he’s asking, then you should explain it to him…some people don’t realize how long these things take and how expensive they can be.

Otherwise, if he wants Ikea, then he should buy the one in the picture and put it on a pedestal, or something.

If you need the money, then take the job…but I would hope that your time is more valuable to you than that.

On the other hand, if you have time to build it as a gift, then do so with a glad heart. I gift my time quite often for people I care about.
