So I don't do bookcases, built ins and what not, in all my years of trim carpentry I have not been on a project that required it nor have I ever had some one ask me to build one.....untill now. These client's want a 10' long x 8' high unit, no back, w/14" cubbies and 2 4' sections coming off the corners w/same cubbies, all painted white. I am familiar (just familiar...doesn't mean I've done it).. with rabbets, dados, grooves, pocket screws and so on but I have no idea where to start, I'm not in the position to turn down work, I gave them what I thought was a high BALLPARK$ to try and deter them and told them they might as well go buy some thing from a store....but they went for my price which now I realize is to low...but it was just a ballpark$. I figure I will slap some thing together out of 3/4" poplar? Pocket screw the partitions and nail all the 14" dividers?? I'm going to meet with them on Tue to present my propasal for some other shelving I'm doing in the closets, I figure I will present them with a proposal for the bookcase and adjust my price higher, telling them I left out some material in my rough estimate. Sooooo...what would you charge to build this?? I figure the cost of my time and all the material it would take me to build this would be close to $2k, I can't imagine they would go for this...I can't imagine doing it for less.
