Deadline near for 2018 Pricing Survey
This built-in urban residential project is just one of five projects in the 2018 FDMC Pricing Survey.

Time is running out for shops to participate in the 2018 FDMC Pricing Survey. The deadline to return bids is Monday, August 20.

The survey is the only industry tool to compare pricing for custom woodwork. Volunteer bidders price the same jobs based on identical bidding specifications and then the itemized bids are published in FDMC magazine and online at Woodworking Network. The result is a revealing portrait of where shops differ on pricing custom work.

This year’s survey includes four different kitchens, including one that was designed for a commercial office. There is also an urban residential built-in project.

You can instantly download the bid package with all instructions. Or you can email [email protected] or phone 203-512-5661 to request a bid package.

All bids must be returned by Monday, August 20, to be included in the survey results, which will be published in the October issue of FDMC magazine.

Maximum participation makes the survey a better tool for everyone, so don’t delay.
