Vince Baker says:

Great Video. I just do woodworking as a weekend hobby I mostly make things for around my home. Once in a while I will make something that someone asked for or something I want to sell. For things that some one wants me to make I will get a idea of what the client wants make a drawing in sketch up & a cut list once we have agreed on that I will price the materials & make my labor cost the same as the materials so if the cost of materials is $150.00 I will charge another $150.00 for labor

Interesting and educational. As always love your honesty…

Angelious2 says:

Nicely done. Just need customers to see it and understand why we can't just make things cheaper.

Scott Mclean says:

Who the hell charge 600 a day. Gaureteed no profit if you charge thus. 150 a day is going rate

Stuart Nagle says:

Like you said, ‘custom built’ is always going to come at custom prices…nowt wrong with that… I dunno about you, but it seems a lot of people don’t know how to do anything nowadays, so there’s always room for GSI…(Get Someone In) to do it for them…👍🏻
