Anyone have some idea the weight of a 1×10x8ft hemlock board? Not like… just cut yesterday, but recently cut so I know they’ll be heavier than a KD 1×10 piece of pine.
Why do I ask this?
Because I have to go pick up 50 of them plus 25 1×6x8ft. I only have my minivan. No trailer, no heavier duty truck. I’m guessing I’ll need 2 trips (about 45 minutes each way + load/unload time). I think this’ll be about just shy of a ton. :)
I know it depends on HOW fresh it is… 453 bd ft at 4100 pounds per 1,000 board feet.
So 4100 x .453 = 1857.3 pounds
that look right?
