So ive been running the machine quite hard. And producing lots of little bits for fathers day and birthdays etc.

This is one i did for my lovely partner. People have been asking how much i would charge them to do one but i have no idea on what to charge.

What you all think its not finished just yet as i need to do a frame and laqcuer it.

i would guess you need to price the cost of material used
and amount of time taken to produce it.

At the moment I get wood for free from my brother and the time doesn't include the design which tbh I don't know I've gotten quite good at the process of design so it's taking less time
