What is a board foot?
The easiest way to grasp this industry convention is simply to understand that a board foot is a unit of volume equal to 144 cubic inches of wood. A board's three dimensions (thickness, width and length) in inches are multiplied together, then divided by 144 to arrive at board footage.

Ex: A board that is 84" long, 6" wide and 1" thick
84 x 6 x 1 = 504
504/144 = 3.5 board feet (bf)

The equilivant of 1 board foot....
24" x 6" x 1" = 1bf
12" x 6" x 2" = 1bf

What is a board foot?
