05-30-2013 10:25 PM by huff | 22 comments »

How to price my woodworking?(And sell it) Part 1 So where do you begin to answer such a simple question; or is it that simple? I’ve heard this question asked so many times and I’ve heard so many one liner’s for an answer:• “Know your market”• “You can only sell it for what the market will bear”.• “I sell it for enough to support my hobby” • “It’s just a hobby, so what does it matter as long as you at least cover your material cost”.• Cost of materials x 2.• Cost of...

How to price my woodworking?(And sell it) Part 4 Putting all the numbers together(Creating a shop labor rate) Shop labor rate; what is that and why would I want or need to have a shop labor rate? I’d like to take credit for coming up with this, but I learned this from another woodworker and you might have even heard of him; Marc Adams.

How to price my woodworking?(And sell it) Part 2 Know your market! So let’s start with why you’re pricing your woodworking the way you are now.

Some people have expressed interest on how much items go for and how to price your projects. I don’t know much about this, but I hooked up with my local farmer’s market and set up some of my projects for sale.
