    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

          I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...

          Shrink wrap systems
          by Linda In Phoenix
          What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

          Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!
