    I made a second stool. Not my design but Paul’s. I wanted something different for the seat so I’m making a chair style seat that I’ll screw into the top.

    I made a small table that someone offered money for. The table has flaws though: a dado is on the wrong side of of one of the drawer sides (it was fixed though), low grade plywood for the bottom of the table, over 15 nail holes pegged, and the inside of a screw hole shows on one of the front legs. I offered the person pics of the imperfections so they know the table is not as perfect as the pics appear to make it. The joinery and drawer however are near perfect and the top looks got nice. Does anyone feel this is the right/wrong approach for pricing a table of this quality? If this was flawless, I have a good idea of what I would ask for. I have no idea what to price it.

    I would probably mention your original price to the customer and then communicate clearly that you are subtracting e.g. 5% for the imperfections. I would make sure customer feels good about it. I guess it is a learning curve so no need to make big profits yet. Customer might return in future seeing your fair approach so it is a kind of an investment in good relationship at this stage…
