Desk cabinet commission

First attempt at what customer needs, she saw rendering and we will shrink the size a bit, by putting in four filing drawers, 2 on each side with a door in the middle and reduce the depth to 20". The height will also come down.

See if you can guess the price?

Cherry with natural clear finish, outside, pre-finished Maple ply inside. The doors and drawers are hardwood rail and stile with Cherry ply panels, the rest is 3/4" Cherry ply. The base is a hardwood Cherry frame.

Well, considering that I'm doing a solid oak desk/hutch for $8000, I'd put this one at $3-$4000.

I would probably be in the $1500.00 to $2000.00 range.

Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.
