I jumped over from the Lumberjocks forum. I am mostly a furniture guy, but I was recently asked to install wainscot in a high end home. I haven’t met with the homeowner yet. That will be later this week. I’m looking for a little guideance on how this type of work is normally priced. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Do this the same way you would do a commission piece – materials, labor, cost of tools and overhead, percentage for contingencies, profit.

First measure it up, draw it up and price it out. I have found that if I cannot make the money I need to make, it is not worth a lower price. No point in losing money on a job, quality costs more.

People ask me to bid on things because I am basically alone so they figure that I will do it for nothing. Truth is, I am about 10% higher by design, I don’t want to be working 100 hours a week working on everybody’s house or project. I pick the jobs I want to do, because I can, not because I have to.
