That’s such a non-specific question you can’t answer it.

Are you talking about a birdhouse or a Pembroke table?

Start with materials +$20/hr.

$93.14, except for the Flashing-Blue-Light Special on the second Tuesday of the month. Then $97.86.

Start by finding the price of the most similar IKEA product, let’s call that x. Triple it, subtract twice your hourly work rate for each day behind schedule and add in any extra shop supplies and a wall anchor kit, since you based it on an IKEA design. Divide all that by the whining coefficient to account for the customer complaining about price, color and wood choice, even though they approved all of that before you started building the product. Don’t forget to add a charge to cover lliability insurance premiums for cancer treatments, since any product you used as a finish is known by the state of California to cause cancer. Finally, factor in the bill for a SawStop brake when you tried to save time by eating in the shop (remember, you were behind schedule) and used the table saw as a hot dog slicer.

So, putting that all together, you should have a final price formula of ([3x-2h(d)+s+a]/.68w)+(i+b)

Now that is for a single piece, if you are batching them out from Rockler kits to sell at craft shows, the formula is totally different.

Super easy. I don’t know why you have to ask on a woodworking forum instead of figuring it out yourself.
