  • Pricing my work???

    what would be a fair price to charge someone for a plaque like the one i made here?



    the piece is about 12" long and 6" wide and isn't finished yet (needs sanding and finishing). being new to this i was surprised when i posted this pic to a local 4sale newsgroup and the next thing i know i'm getting requests. being new to anyone wanting what i'm doing i was thinking of charging enough to cover wood and blades. i'll let the customer (wow i can't believe i just said customer) pick the type of wood.

    Judging on the small amount of scroll work ( since the name is done with a router ) I 'd say $10. is a fair price .But that is just my opion.

      I'd go $15.00-$20.00.

      There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

          Lucky..I think they are done with a router & template because they are too accurate and uniform - in otherwords -to perfectly matched and perfect to be done free hand . I don't know of many even "old scrollers that can cut that perect free-hand...But that is just my opion ... not a knock on the work

              I think the fair price would depend on how much you're paying the Disney Company to license the Winnie-the Pooh image. Just a thought.

                    I am guessing maple or alder. But then again I have never picked winning lotto numbers, so it is just a guess

                      My guess on the wood is Mahagony. I think you did a fine job with the entire project. I also do not think it is hard to do perfect lettering with a scrollsaw. I will let you decide.

                        looks great. the lettering was the easiest part. especially as big as those letters of mine are.
