DSiemens Posted March 16, 2015 Report Share Posted March 16, 2015 (edited) I posted this in another forum but though it should be here as well. While we're on the what is necessary to build a sib I've decided to do a little break down. This is the accountant in me coming out. Wood $5.93 http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00AMJY17C/ref=sr_1_13_olp?ie=UTF8&qid=1426393290&sr=8-13&keywords=basswood&condition=new Enough for 3 sib's at 3 inches each. Price per sib $1.98 Masts and Spars $4.98 http://www.amazon.com/Bamboo-Skewers-Skewer-Kabobs-Appetizers/dp/B00CUO9CXK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1426393557&sr=8-2&keywords=bamboo+skewers Price per sib $.01 Enough for 300 sibs at one skewer per sib. (I probably make two sibs per skewer but to be conservative decided to calculate on one.) Deck Furniture $4.15 http://www.amazon.com/Diamond-Strike-Box-Greenlight-Matches/dp/B003Y30NFW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1426393779&sr=8-2&keywords=matches Price per sib $.07 Box has 300 matches but not all matches are created equal. Estimated 5 per sib. Line $3.99 http://www.amazon.com/UNI-Thread-Olive-Dun-UNI8E266/dp/B00BXNQLU6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1426393998&sr=8-3&keywords=fly+tying+thread+8%2F0 Price per sib $.01 I estimate 300 sibs per spool of thread. Could be higher than that. Anchors blocks misc $5.49 http://www.amazon.com/Artistic-Wire-26-Gauge-Black-30-Yards/dp/B004BNDO3W/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1426394158&sr=8-7&keywords=30+gauge+wire+black Price per sib $.03 Estimated 200 sibs. I'm not actually sure how many this would make since it varies on the sib but I'm sure it could do 200. Sails $8.56 http://www.amazon.com/Southworth-Resume-Cotton-Inches-SOUR14CF/dp/B000083E4G/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1426394768&sr=8-1&keywords=cotton+resume+paper price per sib .03 Estimated three sibs per sheet of paper. 100 sheets total. Bottle $3.78 http://www.amazon.com/12oz-Maple-Syrup-Bottle-TMT02046/dp/B00Q4VURSE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1426394512&sr=8-1&keywords=maple+syrup+glass+bottle Price per sib 3.78 Sea $3.19 http://www.amazon.com/Van-Aaken-Modeling-Clay-Blue/dp/B0019R53AK/ref=sr_1_16?ie=UTF8&qid=1426395100&sr=8-16&keywords=modeling+clay++blue Price per sib .06 Estimated 50 sibs per package. Total price per sib $5.97 Total price for raw supplies $40.07 More would have to be added for glue and tools but generally you can build a ship in bottle for $6.00. This was done with quick research. Prices may vary with the quality of the supply and probably better supplies could be found with more research. The point is this craft is very inexpensive.
