- length(
**feet**) × width(**feet**) × height(**feet**) =**cubic feet**(cf³) - length(inches) × width(inches) × height(inches) ÷ 1728 =
**cubic feet**(cf³) - length(yards) × width(yards) × height(yards) × 27 =
**cubic feet**(cf³) - length(cm) × width(cm) × height(cm) ÷ 28316.846592 =
**cubic feet**(cf³)

I usually use length in feet x width in inches x thickness in inches divided by 144 = cubic foot

It’s sobering when you see on the invoice a price of £4300 per cubic metre

Even more so when you see £15000 pcm !!

Species type. Is the sap wood includes and is it usable Some species such as yew contain lots of defects which you may be able to include or otherwise

2 square edge boards often cost a bit more but you will get a bigger yield than from waney edge boards

Your cutting list and board dimensions. If you need board say 4 inches wide X 48 inches long and you can only but 7 foot boards 7 inches wide you are going to have a lot of wastage (but good to use for other projects etc) conversely 9 foot boards 9 inches wide and and you will get 4 pieces out of a board with minimal overage.
