What the heck are they reading to make the materials worth that much?
Well..start with material cost and go from there, but the thing with fine furniture it's tough to sell.
I get a lot of customers who can probably afford high quality materials, but for whatever reason they insist on cheap so if they insist on cheap materials they're not getting my best work. I'm not wasting my time to build the best widget with garbage materials. You want the best widget you pay for the best materials.
Your name goes on it, why bother with your best efforts with cheap materials?
Since you started with premium materials charge premium prices and if they can't afford it keep it for yourself..
I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
