Frequently Asked Questions
When do you do shop updates?
I announce shop updates through my instagram account, however subscribers to Jesse & Co. always have the opportunity for early bird shopping. You can sign up on the home page and be the first to know!
Do you wholesale?
The bespoke nature of my woodwork is fairly time intensive, so at this stage I am not able to produce work in large bulk and can only take on small orders. For that reason I have to be selective with the wholesale requests I accept as they can take some time to fill. I love doing them though, so please don't hesitate to ask! Sorry, no consignment.
Where do you ship?
We ship worldwide.
What currency is your prices in?
All our prices are in Australian Dollars.
Do you take commissions?
Yes I certainly do. I love the challenge of commissions, so I accept them infrequently as my workload allows. There are a few exceptions. I will not accept requests for recreations of other woodworker's unique styles or products, and some projects I may turn down if I feel the request isn't suited to my capabilities (yes, it happens) or aesthetics. If you have something in particular you would like made for yourself or for a gift, contact me. I would love to discuss it with you!
How do you calculate your prices?
Prices are calculated on a number of factors, but here is a brief outline of the major considerations I take into account.
Wood: Some reclaimed timbers are more expensive than others, or more difficult to source. Imported woods tend to cost higher as they've come from overseas, while foraged or gifted timber can cost me nothing more than a little effort.
Materials: If pieces feature additional materials like glass, clay or metal, the pricing of those materials is included.
Labor: My designs can be quite varied, and some are far more work intensive than others. A piece created on the lathe, or a smaller spoon with a lot of fine work may have higher labor costs than a larger spoon with a more minimal design. This is because one has taken more time and attention to realise than the other.
Size: I may get one breadboard and 4 spoons from a plank of wood, but if the board uses 60% of that timber and the spoons only take 10% each then I can't divide materials costs out evenly. Larger items will have higher material fees. I work out this process based on percentages.
