    Nice job on that Capt.!
    As far as the pricing goes, tough to say. For something in a stack of 4 that took me 14 hours, you're right in the same price range as I'd be though I typically cut in stacks of 5 so my price on something like that would be closer to $60 - $65. I average about 50 cuts an hour (including prep and finish time) in portrait type fretwork so that would be something with about 700 cuts for me. As far as counting, I drill in groups of 50 so that I spend about 45 minutes at a time cutting. Makes it easy to keep count of the cuts and gives me a chance to stretch.

    Actually, I'd price it at $99.95. This way, it's under $100. You know how some people think. If some gal buys it for her husband, she can tell him it was under $100.

    Thanks Minn!
    I never count holes. I did one time on a 400 holer and got intimidated by the number so I quit. I'd also lose count. I'm gonna hang it in a local eatery and slap $100 on it and see what happens. Duck season starts in month so that might help. I think my next cutting will be something a little quicker and easier on the brain, back and eyes.

    That is just beautiful. How long did it take you to do that piece? Talk about patience! Nice work

    Very, very nice job. You have more patience than me. How many entry holes? The detail is explicit. Considering how much time you spent and the final results, $100 would be a bargain, but then it depends on the types of customers in your area. This is another reason I would never cut anything like this, I'd never make even minimum wage for my time.

    You did a great job.

    Anticipation

    Just finished cutting Zaffinos "Anticipation" today. It's the most detailed and time consuming piece I've cut thus far. I stack cut four 1/8" BB pieces with a FD-NS #1. I think I'll only cut two next time with a 2/0 due to the detail. It got a little hairy at times and that #1 looked like a Bowie knife. It took 2 hrs. to prep and most of that was because the pattern wasn't square in relation to the straight cuts on the top, bottom and sides. I learned to be mindful of that possibility on future pieces. I think cut time was about 14 hrs. or so and I'm not finished yet. Still got to get the rest of the fuzzies off and sand it a final time, square up the straight cuts on top then oil and frame it. Thinking of pricing it a $100. What ya' think? To much or to cheap?
