We supplement the well known upper and lower box-counting product
inequalities to give a new product formula for subsets of metric spaces. We develop a procedure for constructing sets so that the upper and lower box-counting dimensions of these sets and their product can take arbitrary values satisfying the above product formula. In particular we illustrate how badly behaved both the lower and upper box-counting dimensions can be on taking products.
