Ther should be someone your way. Your under $1000 total…Someone local might get your doors for $20 a door….

The circa $20/door sounds like a quite low number to me, but then Jack has real business experience as a cabinet and furniture maker. There are a lot of variables, such as type of material used, finished or un-finished, some hardware included or not. Maybe the way these jobs get built tend toward a price for doing the builiding work, and another bill for the materials consumed.

Good luck on the project, Gravelroad, and post some pictures when you have this all settled.

It’s still slow in the KC area and a lot of guys standing around. Something is better than nothing cause nothing doesn’t make payroll… Not every shop feels this way but it can lead to future work when you help someone today in a slow time. Word of mouth is loud these days…

Even the company I work for has been on 4 day weeks for 2.5 months. It will pick up in a week or two as the orders are in.

I would suggest a hard push to get these doors done now as they will ignore you when they get busy..

Haven’t see any free pizza in awhile.
