## Balance Sheet \$type=three\$count=6\$author=hide\$comment=hide\$label=hide\$date=hide\$show=home\$s=0

Recently, I did take big project for making my personal furniture and I found following things which may be helpful to you to reduce the cost of making furniture.

When you make your furniture items, you should meet a good carpenter. Good carpenter has good knowledge of quality of wood, wood board and ply board and other skills for making furniture. In my local area, there are lots of carpenter but most of all are money minded. But, after search, I found a good carpenter who saved my cost more than 50% for making the furniture. What did he do for me?

1st Tip : He knows where I can buy second hand wood boards, ply wood boards and other raw materials of good quality. Actually, there are big contractors who buy second hand furniture and other furniture parts from big companies at very low rates and sell it as second hand. These materials are not so old but when a new company wants to decorate their office with branded ply wood or with new design, at that time it sell it with auction way to big contractors of timber industry. All these furniture's material are of good quality. So, I decided to buy this. Suppose, I need (5 foot X 9 foot) size ply wood board's 10 pieces.

New Ply Wood's Cost = Rs. 20 per foot

If I buy new, my raw material cost will be = 5 x 9 x 10 x 20 = Rs. 9000

Second hand ply wood's cost = Rs. 10 per foot

If I buy second hand quality ply wood material = 5 X 9 X 10 X 10 = Rs. 4500

I saved cost of raw material of furniture = Rs. 9000 - Rs, 4500 = Rs. 4500 which is 50% less than new raw material.

2nd Tip : My carpenter told me that by buying second hand raw material of furniture, we also saved the wastage because no vendor sells same size what we need for specific thing of furniture. At that time, we have to pay more than what is our budget for making furniture. My carpenter has good maths skills. He measured all area of different things correctly and calculated the net need of raw material for this. After this, we went to buy.

3rd Tip : During the setting of my fixture in my building, he gave me good suggestion for saving my place. I followed and now I am using my place effective way. This is also one of good benefit for me.
