I wish I had the answer. The best I can offer is how I do it. I total my material cost and then the labor hours times the hourly rate I have set for myself. Then I ask myself if I would pay that price. Often I have to adjust the final price downward. It is important to remember that your materials and finish are likely much better than what is commercially available.

I think that the larger box would sell well in the range of 30.00 to 50.00 dollars and the smaller one 20.00 to 40.00 dollars. The strip cutting boards I have made have sold for between 5.00 and 15.00 dollars depending on size. This was fine considering I used scrap pieces to make them.
