its not built just yet but it is about 60cm high and the top is 50x90cm
That won't help. Build it then we can give you a better idea. Compare similar designs that you find on the web. Wayfair, Craig's List, and Ebay searches will give you a general idea.

The design and quality will dictate price people are willing to pay for something. If it looks like crap, no one will want it no matter what it is made of and how much effort went into it.

When I price something I base it on what I feel my labor will be. This comes from having enough equipment to build.

Some will say 3x, but I don't agree. Because the materials are high , the labor is the same. If I have to spend more time on the project , I add more...

Too bad your not in my neck of the woods. I love to help, just don't want the pressure to get it done...

If you are making it to sell without a client, then you won't get a much as if it was custom to them.

Sometimes you just want to build nice things even if you don't have a customer. During the poker craze I built tables to sell high to low, but I got stuck with many because I got busy at work and didn't have time. The result the table demand was over. I eventually saw one of my budget poker tables on Craigslist. I have a lady several partially made blanks so she could finish them...
