If each layer is 4 feet wide and 10 feet long, that is 40 BF. Figure the average width in feet, multiply by length in feet, and that is the BF per layer. Count the layers to get the total. If you have 2” thick stock, count that as two layers. Figure the width of the stack as if the boards are butted up in a solid layer with no gaps.
