They all look good, I love the wheel barrel, my wife wants one for the backyard. Nice work.

Using the present SA Rand / US $ exchange rate ($1 = SAR 8) the prices were more or less:
Photo 1 & 2 plant boxes about $2 per box. The order was for about 80 boxes if I remember correctly.
Photo 3 arbor sold for about $100
Photo 4 & 5 & 6 planter boxes about $20

I don’t know how realistic that is in US $ prices as it does not take inflation or the difference in cost of living into account.

To give another idea lets use the Big Mac burger price comparison from the Economist business mag. (The price divided by the price of a big Mac burger) to determine how many big Macs could be bought for the price of the item)
For 1 & 2 I could buy two big Macs for every three boxes sold.
For 3 I could buy about 40 big Macs
For 4 , 5 & 6 I could buy about 7 big Macs
I hope that the above makes sense :-)
