    Not sure if this is an odd question or not but when pricing a rug do you round up per foot, half foot or every inch example if you have a five foot eight inch bear do you charge five feet or five ft six inch.
    Thank you.

    I do it by the foot and round it to the half foot.

    The only time I "rounded up" was when I did the mat at the end. Just like the leather producers, it was by the inch. I never quoted an exact price but told the client a "round figure" with a statement of "by the foot". If I charged $175 a foot, that amounts to $14.58 an inch. A 5'2" bear costs $904. Most time I "rounded down to the nearest $5 figure.

    A great example to follow is the lumber business. If you know anything about lumber, you know its sold by the "board foot" ( 1x12x12). Yet when you go buy a 1x12, you actually get .75 x 11.5. But are still charged as a board foot multiplied by length. If you get a board 8'4", his calculator breaks that down as 4/12 board feet.

    Wow, i didn't realize a bear rug was so expensive. My cousin has one from a bear he got several years ago on a hunt.
