Dear one and all, I hope everyone is well.

I have recently been introduced to a lady who makes Bronzes, who requires some bases made. I have made one so she can see the quality and she loves it and wants me to make more. The one I have made is a little over 1" deep and a little over 12" round, made of ash and stained with Jacobean oak stain. She wants me to work out a price for each, bearing in mind that she will commision 5 or 6 at a time, some bigger bases to and some with the top exposed so nicer wood - yew, purple heart, puduca etc

Costs on first base

Wood £10

Workshop expenses (garage)

Time 2 - 3 hours all in.

how much should I charge?

I would be greatful for you opinions.

Regards

Ricahard
