I am curious about something I know is HIGHLY subjective. Having been in the cabinet business for some years I am moving into furniture making as I draw closer to finish :). I am wondering how long (actual time)it takes to produce a piece of furniture.. Tables and chairs, bedroom furniture, period furniture pieces such as gateleg table. sideboard, highboy and the like. Power tool, Hand tools or combination.
I’m well aware that on the surface this seems ridiculous. But,
CabinetMaker magazine does a thing where they put out a cabinet job for bid and people from around the country give their price on what it would cost. CabinetMaker then prints the bids in a summary. IT is pretty helpful and rather insightful.
I was wondering if anyone (hopefully,(but certainly not limited to)some professionals) could say something like: I build x chairs and table in this much time. OR I took this long to build a chest of drawers. (actual time again:))
I know I watched St. Roy once in the Dominy shop and they stated that it took about 9 hours for them to produce a pie crust table. With hand tools!
I thought there was a web sight that had some similar info on this but can’t remember where it was. I’m not interested in the price, as much as the time needed.
