Thread: My latest Piece

  1. #1
    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.

  3. Looks nice Jester!

    How long did it take to machine?

    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
