Around me (SE US) there are guys who crank out these chairs and swings out of cypress and put on the road to sell. I’ve been amazed by how cheap and how high the prices are. Rarely is there any actual joinery, its usually screws or a crown staple gun.

The only “formula” I have come up with is materials X 20% + $30/hour (that includes time picking up materials, meeting with client, and any designing work). Delivery/installation I just add a bit to the materials to cover.

A lot depends on your production efficiency. For example, if you mass process all your materials you may be assembly time may only be an hour.

It still all goes back to what AK guy said ^^.
