If the working papers correlating with the textbook are not used, omit Problem 17-3B.

Terry Furniture Company refinishes and reuphosters furniture. Terry uses a job order cost system. When a prospective customer asks for a price quote on a job, the estimated cost data are inserted on an unnumbered job cost sheet.

If the offer is accepted, a number is assigned to the job, and the costs incurred are recorded in the usual manner on the job cost sheet. After the job is completed, reasons for the veriances between the estimated and actual costs are noted on the sheet. The data are then available to management in evaluating the efficiency of operations and in preparing quotes on future jobs. On June 1, 2010, an estimate of $1,087.80 for reuphostering two chairs and a couch was given to Ted Austin. The estimate was based on the following data:

Estimated direct materials:
24 meters at $14 per meter $336.00
Estimated direct labor:
14 hours at $18 per hour 252.00
Estimated factory overhead (75% of direct labor cost) 189.00
Total estimated costs $777.00
Markup (40% of production costs) 310.80
Total estimated costs $1,087.80

On June 4, the chairs and couch were picked up from the residence of Ted Austin, 409 Patterson St., Vienna, with a commitment to return them on August 5. The job was completed on August 2.
