    Might be worth you asking the question again when the time comes Andy, lots of different things to consider that will affect how you price things.

    May be Lee could have a sticky called pricing considerations.,? Only after talking to Mike who obviously is heavily into the pricing because it's his full-time occupation I found things that I hadn't even considered. For instance I went down to the Wood yard to pick out some materials by the time I had finished it works three hours including the drive time. Then there were the prototype's that didn't quite work, and also some of the attempted finished work where the wood had hidden problems, and had to be discarded halfway through. Then the time creating the website to advertise the stuff the list goes on and on. And also at some point like Mike said it goes from a hobby or part-time job to where the taxman becomes interested in what you are selling. Anyway there was just a thought.

    The Taxman - Try to look on that as a positive, whilst tax returns are a PITA, you only pay tax if you have made a profit, something that you are obviously hoping to do. G.

    Sorry mate my old man is called Geoffrey, it must have been a freudian slip. I'll retract the grumpy bit if you are going to have a huff about it! ;)

    I have to chip in and say that these are works of art. Most artist do not make their own paint and brushes so using tools is part and parcel. I work a lot in wood and your choices are sweet. What size are these pieces?
