The cost of ordering a fully customized piece depends on the complexity of the order. If your project requires more complex drafting (i.e. cabinetry) I may ask for a consultation fee for my time.
All custom pieces require a retainer of 40% before any physical work will take place. I ask for this retainer to ensure that both the client and I have mutual incentive. A retainer tells the designer you're serious and provides the capital for material; when the work has been completed I collect the remaining 60%.
AVERAGE WAIT TIME
For the average table you can expect a wait of 2-4 weeks before completion; varying depending on demand.
