no fun + no money= don’t do the job.
Tell them your material costs and give them 20% off your normal price.

Better yet, tell them to buy the materials and work by the hour. Oh, by the way THEY do all the sanding.
With those rules you’ll never be asked for free favors again.

Most uninformed consumers assume they are doing you a favor to pay you IKEA prices for solid hardwood furniture. We need to educate people about the true cost and time investments involved.
