My first woodburn commission

As part of my fundraiser, I offered an 8 x 10 basswood burn for $25 to the first taker on Facebook. A friend of mine responded within less than a minute. This was my first time burning on basswood. I will definitely be increasing my prices for these after the fundraiser is over, but I am trying to decide what to charge for this skill level at this time. This plank of wood pre-routed cost me about $7.50.

Shazam! That is stupendous. So, you got about like $.50 cents an hour?

Thank you everybody!

Just wanted to bump up this thread for All4Crytsal. I'd love som input about what I should even begin to charge for these. This one was an 8 x 10 plank of basswood.

That looks great Liz! Congrats on a first commission. :)
You should definitely raise the price. I charge $55 for 7 1/2" by 8". You can see my prices on my FB page.
People still think that it's a great price.

Thank you All4Crystal! I was thinking in the ball park of $50-60 for 8 x 10 because of the cost of materials and time, but I didn't want to charge too much given the fact that I have very limited experience with woodburing. I may start at $50 and see how much interest I get.

You're welcome.
You don't need experience. You need talent. And you do have plenty of that. ;)
