40hrs+ per week for 52 weeks? What did the client pay for this? Impressive work.
That is just beautiful and a piece that will definitely be kept, I'm sure, for centuries to come! Put some more projects like that and you'll have a wing at the Louvre to yourself! I would be interested to know a rough idea of how much they had paid too!
What does "cms" stand for?
Ian Harrison [08/15/2011]
cms = centimeters
If that is the case, why is there an "s" on it - c for centi, m for meter, s for ?
Wouldn't "cm" convey the same information?
Jim Dickie [08/15/2011]
That would be because it denotes more than 1 cm.
People want to know the cost.
Well let's see the size is approximately
32" x 32" by about 24" tall. 2600 hours@ a minimum of $100 an hour for someone with this skill set + the "timber" from all over the world, even pricey timbers (a.k.a kiln dried wood)in this quantity should not have exceeded $5-10k (probably on the lower side).
Hence 2600 hrs.@100 = $260,000 + $7,500 in materials + 15% o.h. & p = $307,625.
there you have it!
