Furniture Pricelist:  

A word about how my prices are set:  because of the shaped (carved) nature of the furniture I make, I use almost exclusively 2 inch (8/4) stock.  I buy this rough sawn - as it comes off the mill - at a saw mill in Kingston, N.H. They have consistently the lowest prices and steadiest, high quality supply of any lumberyard I've found.  It takes me 3 hrs. round trip to get the lumber I need. Lumber bought this way is measured and paid for by the board foot ("bdft" -- 2" X  6" X 12" = 1 bdft). You may get a little more waste buying it this way but I can get more of the figured lumber that I want.  It takes about 30 bdft to make a chair for an example.  Black walnut costs $14/bdft, cherry is $7.20/bdft, white oak is $7.50/bdft (quarter sawn), $5.50 plain sawn.

As an example, a rocking chair (30bdft) in walnut costs $420 in lumber.  It costs me $20/ hr. to run my shop- investment in tools and the cost of parts for maintenance, electricity, blades and bits, sandpaper, and insurance.  It takes 200 hrs. to make the chair, so at the price of $6960, I'm making $31.80 minus the $20.00, for the shop,  or $11.80/hr. for my time.   Ultimately, this is not production run, factory furniture - this is one of a kind, custom built furniture. The nature and cost of my work lies not only in the aesthetic and materials, but also in craftsmanship and longevity - you and your heirs will enjoy these pieces for lifetimes.
