Kreg Owners' Community

I do have a question if some could give me advice. I feel my work is pretty good but I'm not sure how to come up with a fair amount to charge people for my labor. 

Any suggestions?

Hi alan I did recall seeing a discussion about this very subject on here .Believe someone one said price of materials and x by 5, hope this helps.

Alan, if you are going to sell a product, you need to look at some of the information out there for starting a business.  You have to look at everything from 1. gasoline used to go pick up lumber, 2. electricity used in the shop, 3. rent or mortgage, 5 finishes, etc. 

People (customers) want to compare hand made artisan products to those that are mass produced in China and your product requires a lot more work, resources, and over all expenses to produce.  Don't be afraid to charge for your efforts.  "Good work ain't cheap, and cheap work ain't good".....

Good advice. Thanks a lot.

New Kreg 720Pro

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
