Price of anything depends heavily on the local market. What sells around me like crazy, you may not be able to give away in your location. Find out what similar are selling for around you and price accordingly.
Not sure about the linseed oil finish, most I know of use mineral oil and/or paraffin.

I would suggest that you not use oak for a cutting board. The wood is bad to turn black when exposed to water. Also making cutting boards you would probably be better off using a cheaper wood than walnut and mahogany. It looks nice but people are looking at the price more than the wood.

Here's about 10,000 of them that might give you an idea of what they go for.

I don't know what your prices will be, but I found that my boards have sold for $35-90 each. Depends on size. I use only, hard maple, walnut, and cherry.
I have never used anything on them for finish EXCEPT mineral oil. Others have used salad bowl finish etc.
All the boards I make are end grain boards, after sanding and sizing, I liberally apply mineral oil, let set till all is absorbed, then reapply and repeat a third time.

I have not seen linseed oil that is said to be food safe. Actually I have never considered it nor looked for it. Just my opinion.

My father was my inspiration for woodworking, wish he was still around for more advice. Luv ya Dad.
