Board Footage Calculator

  • Board Footage Calculator

    Board Foot: Rough sawn lumber is usually sold by the board foot (bd/ft). A board foot is equal to a piece of wood 12 inches long x 12 inches wide and 1 inch thick, or 144 cubic inches. To figure the board foot measurement of a piece of wood, multiply the length x width x thickness in inches, then divide by 144.
