I agree with the consensus here to be honest, really nice idea and would personally like one, but the price is a bit over what I would expect to be paying for flat pack furniture.

I think one of the issues for marketing this is that you are mostly selling to a group who are quite interested in building, making and customising things - this leads to a reluctance to pay for much beyond the materials.

I'm not saying they're bad, I'm just wondering why KR feel the need to branch out into furniture?

Slack market with fewer number of people buying specific products. Ergo, wider range, greater number of potential customers.

I'm one of the (I suppose few) people who could easily build this myself with tools I already own. My rough estimate is ~£50 if you just want functionality and I could make one in a day easily enough.

So not worth the money in my mind. You could actually buy the tools AND the parts for less than they're offering, and provided you took your time and planned properly it'd be very easy to make something as good, if not better over a week or two in your spare time. Those are my thoughts.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

Mine too... and all I've got is my highschool woodwork qualification. that said, built my own wardrobes and shelving fine and the basic construction methods aren't that different.

But what is your hourly rate?

I would guess you don't have to be particularly highly paid before these aren't that badly priced, always remember the opportunity loss in such "cost saving" things - that does of course assume you view it as a chore and not a fun opportunity to make furniture (as I certainly would)
