  • Suspended Wine holder (price?)

    I'm sure some of you have made that suspended wine bottle holder from issue 31 (summer 2008). I just made my first one and have several people interested. Any suggestions on price? I used maple and walnut for mine. Thanks.

      Here is the pic. I'm sure a lot of you have made them. I never expected to have so many people interested in it.

        I've made them, too, and they are really popular. You did a great job! I'd say between $25 and $35, but that depends on your area. I remember that it was quite a bit of work, not to mention the three thin pieces of wood.

          I never go below the 15-20 $ range. Don't sell yourself short. Besides it gets rid of the yard salers that think everything should be free

            Thank you. I was initially thinking somewhere in the 30 dollar range but wasn't sure. I'm in NY where everything is expensive so I think I will go with 35.00.

            Oily, one thing I always try to avoid is selling myself short. I'd rather not make a sale than sell something too cheap. By the way, I hope you're feeling better.

              The less intricate ones, just a slab of wood I get $18.00--- for that one I get $35.00. You did a nice job on it by the way.

                I sold plan ones no detail. For 15. Then I personalized them and got 40. Mine were made from a single 3/4" piece of oak from the drop pile.

                Just me though.

                  If it's a NY crowd, go for $40. The more you charge, the more they'll think the project is worth! You can alway do a "2 for $75" if you want!

                    You are going to bring one in for show and tell Thursday right.
                    I agree with Carole $35 to $40 especialy knowing your attention to detail.!

                      Thank you all again for your comments.

                      Carole, I already posted the 35.00 price and people have seen it so I can't change it at this point but I like your idea of 40 or two for 75. Too bad I didn't see your post beforehand.

                      Rolf, yeah I'll bring it Thursday. But it's going to pale in comparison to something else I just finished and will be bringing Thursday.

                            I have made quite a few of these, in fact, many just like the one pictured. I sell them for 25 dollars each. I've never had the price questioned. In my area I think that's a fair price.
