The time required to make a bowl depends on both the diameter and the height of the bowl, so I add the two together.  The price per inch is chosen to generate about $40 per hour, as fixed overhead is significant.  Slightly less for woods that are faster to turn and sand, slightly more for woods that are slower.  Fixed addition for beads, band, other details, also for standout figure and such.

Ed, it has been awhile, if you do not mind how well did you do on your piece?

One measure of a great craftsman is how well he can hide his mistakes!
