  • What should I charge?

    I made this frame for my GF mother-in-law her ex's mother. Greg was her son and he recently passed. She saw the one I made for my daughters grandma and loved it and asked if I'd make her one. I have no idea what to charge her for it. It's made from 1/2" aspen with 1/4" MDF backer. I cut a place for his picture with 1/16" (I think) plexiglas. Took me like 3 days, maybe a total of 12 to 15 hours. Any opinions on cost will be greatly appreciated! Don

    Anyone notice anything odd with the plaque?

    I see you changed font for June and July. You are going to have to charge what you think you deserve and how much they can afford . It is sort of family.

      Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

      Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

      Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
      Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
