Tony Slattery76 posts in 557 days #2 posted 06-06-2015 10:28 PM Thanks for sharing. Have bookmarked the page. Can anyone explain what a board foot is please? My understanding is that it is related to buying raw (unprocessed) lumber from a mill. Assume that the term 4/4 actually means on inch thick, 6/4 = 1.5 inches and 8/8 = 2 inches thick. Does anyone know how this rather quirky form of measurement came about – no offense, just curious. Originaly from South Africa we used cubic meters as a measurement, which is length multiplied by height by width. -- Tony, Australia, http://www.wooden-toy-plans.com/ Pezking7p3097 posts in 1114 days #3 posted 06-07-2015 01:00 AM Tony, a board foot is a volume of wood that is 1 foot by 1 foot by 1 inch thick. 144 cubic inches or 0.0024 cubic meters. -- -Dan Tony Slattery76 posts in 557 days #4 posted 06-07-2015 08:22 AM Tony, a board foot is a volume of wood that is 1 foot by 1 foot by 1 inch thick. 144 cubic inches or 0.0024 cubic meters. - Pezking7p Thanks for that, Dan, makes a lot more sense now. -- Tony, Australia, http://www.wooden-toy-plans.com/ Jim Finn2409 posts in 2384 days #5 posted 06-07-2015 01:36 PM Does not work for me.
