Nice work, I’m curious, how much is a cube of pine, say in board feet?

thanks very much

im not sure about the board feet
a cube of pine is a solid block of wood that is 1 metre by 1 metre by 1 metre

the customer wanted a cheap kitchen so pine was perfect
i also had to do a lot of convincing because solid wood kitchens are very rare in south africa and people dont really think they can afford them as everything here is chipboard so im trying to start a trend i suppose but its very rewarding:)

Really nice work. From what I can calculate 1 cube is about 423.8 board feet.

That is a common look where I come from, I personally don’t care for that much knotty pine, but the customer is always right eh?

I like the wood and think it it would look good in my cabin in the mountains. Not sure I could do the counter tops though. I prefer stone. But as you stated it was for a CUSTOMER. Nice job.
