    Hi all,

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

    *****
    Pedro,

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

      How much can you afford? Or if you have to ask...you 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,
        Marcel
