I recently had a potential customer balk at the price for a custom TV enclosure that was 8' long, 2' deep and 4' high in a special Formica laminate finish. My estimate was $4,500. He told me that he had 3 shops bid it and we were all in the same price range. He then compared it to a kitchen remodel he did last year for $6,000. Based on that comparison he said we must be making a killing! Ahhh, I wish that were so. I wish we cabinetmakers were rolling in profits. But this is the old comparing "apples to oranges" scenario.
