Book Description

Professionals, hobbyists, and people of all woodworking skill levels in between will appreciate this set of quick reference tables for determining board foot measurements. The figures go beyond a simple discussion of the calculation, providing actual measurements for dimensions ranging from one to more than 25 inches wide, one to 20 feet long, and one to four inches thick. Whether figuring quantities for a project or facing a large amount of inventory to count, this tool for craftspeople frees them from calculators, computers, and the lumber stick.

2Waste of paper
By Kiki
Misleading description from publisher/Amazon. It's a book of tables to calculate the board feet based on width, thickness and length. It should be an appendix to a much more comprehensive lumber book. Don't waste your money.
