How can you tell how many board feet you can get out of a log?

Thanks

There’s lots, but find out which scale is used most in your area.
Like if you intend to contact a sawyer ask which scale he uses.
I use a Doyle scale stick myself.

Weigh one board foot of the same wood. Weigh the log. Compare.

Or…

Measure the length. Add the diameter, and go eat some pie.

Now THAT’S funny!
