I'm hearing lots of companies report they are experience intense price pressure in the current economy. Everybody is asking them to sharpen their pencils. That means no shop can afford to be pricing in a vacuum. Not only do you need to know your own true and complete costs, but you need to have intelligence on how other shops price similar work. That's where CabinetMaker's
Pricing Survey comes in.
The Pricing Survey is the only tool in the industry to compare pricing on custom woodworking projects. We take real jobs done by real shops and offer the original bidding specifications to shops all across the country to see how they would bid it. Then we print the itemized results in the October issue of CabinetMaker
. This year we have some great projects, including two kitchens, a residential library, a courthouse guard desk, and some reproduction chairs. Your participation is essential to make the survey a success. The more shops that participate the better the data. All shop names are kept anonymous; only the state or province is noted to suggest regional trends.
