I have been selling my boxes with images inlaid into the hinged lids and other items for seven years now. I price my items on what I think a person will pay for it. It does not matter how long it takes for me to make. I find a price that works and then ask myself if it pays to make that item. If not I move on to another idea.

I price mine at $12.50/hour on the saw plus the price of the wood. Some folks want it stained & finished, some don’t. That enters into shop time then, & shop materials.
