Thanks Huff and MJCD for the welcome.
MJCD, In terms of pricing this job, well most jobs I do actually, I tend to sit down with the drawing and try to work out what is realistically achievable in a day. The drawers for instance will be done in a day, the doors will take a day, half a day milling and routing the poplar etc, just break it down and relate that to the experience of other jobs to arrive at a time estimate, I’m just a one man shop and I’d make a decent living if I was working 40 hours a week every week but things are rough here at the moment. I can’t blame the client for questioning the price, things are tough for everyone and they have a young family, really, with this one, I’m just glad of the work.
Doing the best I can with what I've got
