I understand where crank49 is coming from, it’s a logical way to price a piece. But in all honesty, do you think the lady will pay $234 each for a 12” X 16” cutting board? I would not, even if I could not cut a 2X4 in half.
Find out how many she wants, what the expectations of woods are, (can you use maybe other woods that you might have in stock), and price it as a batch, using glue-ups as large as your saws can handle to speed things along. Try to get them down below $100. If you cannot, I think you will be lucky to get this deal. Use the fastest sealer you can find that is food safe. This is time, time, time, not so much material.
