I have a lot of woodworking calculators I’ve had for many years. They’ve saved me a lot of time and frustrations over the years. I’ve added them to my free furniture plans site so anyone wanting them can download them. If you have one or a better one and would like to list it on my site just let me know.

Here is a list of them. Enjoy and if you have any problems let me know.

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, 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.

Thanks for that, Dan, makes a lot more sense now.
