Awhile back I decided to use of some of my shorts, cutoffs, and scrap. I figured I’d make a standing block (end grain) cutting board for the kitchen.
I didn’t really want them in the house, since we have way too many small pieces of junk laying around so I gave one to my bosses wife and one to a neighbor lady.
Interestingly, the neighbor lady came up and asked what I would charge to make a few more of them, only larger, about 12”X16”. I honestly have no idea what I would have to charge because this was a small job just to use up some scrap that would have ended up in the burning pile and I didn’t work on them full time, although I had about 7 hours total into making those two.
The wood was all grown here and harvested from trees and downed branches on our property so I’d have to buy the pecan and the walnut from a dealer. I haven’t got enough of it on hand. The Osage Orange I have plenty of and it’s well seasoned, but really hard on equipment.
Any ideas or comments on what I should charge?
