COMMISSIONS & ORDERS
We will start by discussing furniture design ideas and options. You can tell me just to design a table in my own style with very little parameters or you might have a particular design in mind. The more information, ideas, examples, and images I can get from you, the better the final product. Communication is key and I am open to your ideas.
The initial discussion in which we determine the basic parameters is free. When we feel comfortable with planned direction, it is time to start drawings. Furniture drawings take time and skill. I can draw what I think our initial consulting has led. It is also good to look at wood samples. The initial drawing and design cost varies depending on complexity of design and you will not be obligated to proceed to the construction contract.
When we are satisfied with the furniture design, it is time for a contract that outlines the piece, with a descriptions outlining what is agreed on. A 50% deposit is required to begin construction. When the project is at half completion, a progress payment of 25% is needed. 25% is due at completion prior to shipment. If delivery is on Maui final payment can be made at that time. Koa furniture and sculpture leaving Maui require crating, packing and shipping. These are additional charges, I crate my own pieces, and shipping is done via air freight. Maui delivery is free.
