Do you have a kitchen project you would like to see featured in the annual Pricing Survey? Find out how other shops would bid your kitchen job.
CabinetMakerFDM is on the hunt for a good kitchen cabinet project to add to the 2012 CabinetMakerFDM pricing survey.
“We’ve gotten some great project submissions for residential built-ins, commercial work, and custom furniture, but we need a kitchen,” says William Sampson, CabinetMakerFDM editor and creator of the survey, which has tracked pricing for custom woodwork for more than a decade. “Kitchens are typically the most popular project in the survey, so we’d like to make sure there is one for 2012.”
How it works
CabinetMakerFDM’s annual Pricing Survey takes real projects done by real shops and provides the bidding specifications so shops all around the country can submit bids. Then the magazine publishes the itemized results so custom shops can compare pricing for the same work.
But the key to the Pricing Survey’s success for more than a dozen years is the quality of the projects. Now is your chance to be one of those projects. You can see your work featured in the magazine and then get detailed information on how other shops would price it. “It’s a golden opportunity to get valuable pricing insight to add to your bidding intelligence,” says Sampson.
It’s easy to submit a project
Every project submitted requires just a few things. We need basic dimensioned drawings and bidding specifications, including a description of any special features or challenges that would affect pricing of the project. We also need good finished photos of the project, and of course, your actual pricing information that you used to bid the job.
If you have a kitchen project to subit contact editor Will Sampson by email at email@example.com or by phone at 203-270-0025. Provide a summary of the project and why you think it would be good for the Pricing Survey. Sampson will respond to complete the submission. Don’t wait. Do it today because we are compiling the bid package now.
