    Hi all,

    I just received the following question by email. I would like to hear what your answers would be.


    How much would you charge to build the Eiffel Tower model seen on your

    As much as you can PLUS 50%

      How much can you afford? Or if you have to can't afford it.

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

        How long does it take to build?
        What are the material costs ?
        What is your time worth?

        There is no specific answer, but definitely add a value for the "art" aspect.
        You are a true artist Pedro, and no you don't need to go hungry because of it.

        You want to do it for the fun of it: charge a little and be sure of the sale.
        You have built it for fun already in the past, and this is a commissioned piece of art from an artist?

        Go for the gold, figure out your costs and labor, then at a minimum double it.

        The more you charge, the more they will figure they have a piece of art worth something (people are weird that way) if you don't charge enough they think it's a cheap wooden thingy.

        On a different note: How did the build for the theatre group go? is it done? do you have pictures of it?

        Good luck,
        DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

          I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

          I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

          Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

          Being younger than 65, with no qualifying health conditions, I don't anticipate getting a vaccine for some time. My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves...
