Dan…my mother in law is a true German. But she already mentioned that even if it had it looked not quite as nice (I’m bragging) it would still mean more than a purchased product. It really meant a lot to her and my wife.

Price wise? There is a lot of mark-up on funeral products (emotions, short time frame, etc. is a salesman’s dream). So on a wholesale basis probably worth about $300 or so. Wood content was probably < $25 in its rough state. Router bits and planer/jointer knives don’t last forever so some cost there and then you got the stain/brush/paper towel/paste wax thing that adds a few pennies.

Time was a lot, much of that on set-up. Hence the suggestion to build a few at a time. There is probably some money to be made for those so inclined.
