About Portfolio News Process Home Contact JP Parnas Woodworking Fine•Custom•Furniture

The commission process starts with a need and a desire. My job is to bridge between the practical and the aesthetic.

I start with an understanding of the clients’ requirements for the use of a piece and then begin to reference similar examples to start a dialogue of design vocabulary. Sometimes a piece will begin as an idea - or simply as a piece of wood - and the use comes afterward.

Once the schematic design is agreed to, I will produce a detailed drawing for approval and for use in determining a price for the piece. A design fee will be charged with receipt of the drawing(s).
A portion of the total cost of the piece will be required in order to begin work - generally  between 30% and 50%.

Scheduling depends on my availability and the complexity of the piece.
