I would suggest you search the net for cutting boards, see how they compare to what you are doing – end grain, exotic woods, etc, and use those prices to average a basis in determining your charges for a completed board. After that, see how long it takes you to make one, deduct the cost of lumber, then divide the remaining money by your hours of labor to determine your hourly income.
This should pretty much let you know rather quickly if you want to go into production.
Good luck.

That Is my plan. Heck, that’s almost verbatim what I jotted down yesterday. Great minds think alike!
