Nice work. Reasonsonable price with at least not a – sign.

He still beat you down. Design time, getting materials, processing etc. Should all be paid hours.

This is something it took me a long time to learn.

But when ever I hear people say materials X ? = price. That is sooooooo wrong. I can buy rough 1×6 birch maple etc for a about $5 a bd ft. For S4S it is over 9 a brdft.

I can turn the rough into S4s faster than I can drive to a different lumber yard. So right there is one big no no.

Because I have a good relationship and get a better price on premium ply with one supplier. Should that alter the finished price. Same labour to cut up $40 a sheet vs $150 a sheet.

Material in one row, labour in another, wear and tear on your machines and truck in another.

Also I never ever ever let some on finish my work. 99.9% of the time the finish is planned way before I cut the 1st board.

My 2 cents Canuck Style.
