Woodworking is a craft I love because it enables me to design and make objects that define and improve a space with materials that are locally available, sustainably harvested, salvaged from previous construction, and always unique.
The design process can take time--both mine and yours. Together, we will discuss your objectives to arrive at the design criteria: the object's functions, your aesthetic goals, material preferences, and budget. From those criteria, we will envision the piece(s) together; then I will draw up a design from which the piece(s) will be made.
My rate is $40/hr. for the time I spend working on your commission: the consulting, designing, building, installing, or delivering of your work.
Whenever possible, I transport wood, tools, and finished work with my bicycle and trailer.
Materials, supplies, and gas mileage are charged in addition to my hourly rate.
