<snip> My point was simply that it seems a fair price for a commercially
produced bedroom set <snip> for $1,000 I would expect to get poor
quality materials, poor quality craftsmanship, or most likely both.
Maybe it would be considered a fair price in your part of the
Hell, you can get crappy work and materials fo a lot more than that
if you want to pay it.
If I was going to make one, and I'm not, I'd probably make it out
of poplar or some other inexpensive wod. It won't matter a bit to a
kid, so don't worry about it. The "desk" looks like a simple shelf t
me. I'd go to a used furniture store, or yard sale, and get a cheap,
sturdy, dresser, clean it up, and re-finish it. Depending on what part
ofthe coundry you're in you're talking low hundreds of dllars, not low
thousands. Probably 2-3 weekend's work. If you want to buy one
similar, shop around, I've seen very similar going for a whole lot less.
In the rough is just enough.
