Board Foot Calculator
Here's a simple, fast and easy way to figure out your rough-sawn lumber requirements. Just enter the thickness, width, length and quantity you need, and the Board Foot Calculator will compute board feet and total board feet.
- All of Buck Woodcraft's lumber is sized according to thickness, in one-quarter-inch increments, which is the way rough lumber is sold. So, for example, a listing that reads "4/4 Teak" is 1" thick (rough). "8/4 teak" is 2" thick (rough), and so on.
- This calculator rounds lumber thickness up to the next 1/4" and lumber less than 4/4 is rounded up to 4/4. Thus, a specified thickness of 3/4" will be treated as 4/4" material.
- You can enter fractional wood dimensions as decimals (12.75), or as conventional fractions (12 3/4). If you use fractions, just make sure you leave a space between any leading whole number and the fraction.
