So working off your guys program made my first sale for $150 for like a 4 tier shelving unit. Great learning experience. Question though. When you do the material costs, do you fraction the price or put the total price of the individual item like screws into the total estimate?

Johnathan Garcia says:

I could be wrong but the edge that you cut with the circular saw may have came out so rough due to not having a perfectly flat panel.

Jonathan Go Fast says:

Your video's are awesome, keep em coming. Also I've used a saw table for more than 20 years with out glasses,,, no issues, if it where metal put the glasses on.

Paul Santurri says:

Great looking table. I agree that staining it darker wouldn’t have looked as good.

Paul Buckel Jr says:

Liked it before I watched it! Was not disappointed. Nice looking table, as for the safety gla…… Nevermind, lol. I wear prescription safety glasses so they're always on, ha ha.

John Lambert says:

Drives me crazy how people on social media think they have to a negative comment just be as they are living in there moms basement at 40 and have nothing better to do ,if I want to saw my fingers off its my business and none of theirs!!! Sorry for the rant . Nice work I enjoy watching because you are one of the few that's not scared to talk about pricing .

I'm so new to woodworking that I'm studying wood types and trying to buy the start up tools….so…I have no knowledge worth spilling on this table…i say this so you dont misunderstand my question.

As someone that always buys crap $200-300 coffee tables from wherever based mostly on looks to be honest, I'm trying to find a point I would spend 500 for this coffee table. I'm not knocking it one bit, I just need help understanding it. As far as its design, it's a straight legged, rectangular basic coffee table.

The value is the fact that when I pay 500 for some fancy "looking" one, I'm not getting 100% solid hardwood correct. Where as with yours that thing is good old fashioned long lasting solid hardwood.

Your good at what you do, this is not bashing your table, I like it alot… I just know for 500 you can buy tables with designs carved into the wood and the legs, so I'm thinking it's because these crap tables are assembly required, and made out of a cheaper wood that they get the same price because people are paying for the fake "fancy" look and not the quality of build?

Your good brother, honestly no hate at all, I'm just ignorant when it comes to handmade furniture so I'm trying to figure out how I convince people that is worth 500.

I think like you said, if your potential customers dont see the value, then change your potential customers because they never will?

Anyways, you do good work, keep it up man! New subscriber after seeing this video. Nice table man, I love those drawer styles btw.

Austin Steele says:

What a nice looking coffee table👌👍 I enjoyed watching the build and business/sales advice. I am planning on selling things in the future, but i have just been building up my skills and equipment since i started up this year😎 i really appreaciate and value the advice you two share!

Aaron Blount says:

I have to say that your video's along with others definitely helped push me to start building. And now that I've started building, a buddy wants to pay me to build an RPG gaming/Dining room table. Apparently I build better than I thought…LOL

The thick oak top is niiice

Nuts and Bolts says:

Do you worry about liability insurance for your business and the products you sell? I’m not implying that the furniture y’all are making is going to fall apart and hurt someone. We live in a “sue happy” world and I was curious if insurance is part of your pricing structure from a business standpoint.

Also, do you offer a craftsman warranty as part of your sales pitch and if so, what are the details for that?

MrTegidTathal says:

I was watching you measure and mark the drawer slides and thinking "Wow, he gets those to line up that way?". I don't think you NEED the Rockler Jig, but of course you can totally justify it. But drawer slides are one of those things you at a minimum need spacer blocks for. I moved 2 drawers in my "workbench" a couple of weeks ago and spacer blocks made it all work out the first time for both drawers.

David Barr says:

Where do you get your wood that it is wrapped in plastic? I've never seen that.

Daniel Lawson says:

After reading some of the comments on here I think what gets lost is, people will pay what they are willing to pay period. Someone will  prefer Bobs or Ikea over someone like you and that's ok as that is what they are willing to pay, but if you spend time to design something the person can't find in a store (hence why I started to make my own stuff) and they don't have the skill, time or want to build then they will buy from someone a custom piece. The people who say yeah but your not making it this way or using this joinery or why did you use pocket holes, if you look at most of the stuff people buy again at bobs or ikea you do not get dove tails and mortise and tenon. You get dowels and metal screw clips and such. Pocket holes have been used for hundreds of years (or some version of it). If someone is willing to pay you for your time and effort then it is what it is. As you gain more experience and a reputation you can try doing the dovetails and mortise and tenon stuff and as you get better you get faster and make nicer pieces that someone will pay for. I personally am a self taught person and I make stuff for my friends and family and charge a what I see as a fair amount but not stupid because I know my skill level. I have yet to have anyone complain and have had the same people come back to me a couple of times. There is room for everyone to build and make money, how you do it and where you do it will dictate how much you make. So please if you want to critique to help the person get better or offer constructive criticism that fine but don't tear someone down because they don't make it as good as you or to just be critical there is no need. Try teaching them instead. Sorry for the long post.

Greetings! Thoroughly enjoying all of your content and I love that you are providing all this information so that the rest of us can have a side hustle if we would like. A small request would be that when you put text on the screen if you could leave it up for just a second or two longer. Maybe I’m just old and slow but it flies by and I have to go back and pause the video every time to see what it says. You guys rock.

Cj Harder says:

Nice video. And, I do appreciate the absence of PC in your videos. It is refreshing. I've been selling items I make in the wood-shop now for a couple years. At this point, I simply add cost of material and figure in my time. I skip a mark-up. In no way saying that's the way to go, but after working 40 hours a week at my normal job, answering 200 shit emails a day, and dealing with asses, my wood-shop is a fun get-away. I guess I just look at it like this…if I can make money doing something I enjoy, that's a plus. I don't feel I'm short-changing myself, and those I sell to know they are getting a great deal.
I should also mention though, in all fairness, I help a guy run a sawmill, so lumber, of many species, is of no cost, other than time. That helps tremendously. Now, having said that, at this point in my life, should I have to buy the lumber, I would still only charge for materials and my time. But again, that's just me. I love to fish, and hunt too. I wish I could make $30 an hour casting a fishing pole, or setting in a tree stand. I can't and don't, but certainly can in the wood-shop.

That bit of exposed plywood under the table top cannot be unnoticed. Cover it with a strip of oak or paint it black. 🙂
