Fine Furniture to Commission

F U R N I T U R E M A K E R

The Commissioning Process

 1. Initial contact is made by phone, email, or a meeting at a show.The basis of the commission is discussed maybe along with a few ideas.

2. A meeting is arranged. I like to visit the client at their home, if possible. The commission can be discussed in detail and I am able to see where the piece is to go. This allows me to suggest ideas to fit in with the décor, colours and other furniture and features if appropriate.
 
3. The design. I will then go away and produce some designs and a quote based on the initial meeting. This is done mainly on computer.
 
4. A second meeting is arranged and the designs are presented to the client. I will also bring along any appropriate examples of wood, hardware, finishes, veneers etc.
If the designs are agreed upon and the quote accepted, two things will happen to confirm the commission as an order:

  1. The client and I will both sign identical copies of the design. The client will keep one and I will keep the other. This is to avoid any dispute regarding the design at
  a later date
  2. A 50% deposit will be accepted.

You are welcome to visit the workshop to see your piece in progress if you wish.

You should allow a minimum of three months from commencing the work to delivery, depending on the job, but some pieces will take less time than this. Depending on my workload, there may be delay of some months before the piece can be started.
