What Is A Board Foot

A board foot is a wood measurement for a piece of lumber 12" wide by 1' long by 1" thick for estimating purposes

How Long To Air Dry Wood

Eventually, the wood will reach a moisture content that is in equilibrium with the surrounding ambient air and humidity. While a 1-inch red oak board may take two to three months to air-dry, a 2-inch board may take six to eight months, and even thicker lumber may take years.

How Do You Calculate Board Feet

Board footage is calculated by multiplying the nominal thickness in inches (T) by the nominal width in inches (W) by the actual length in feet (L) and dividing by 12. The formula is: T x W x L = Board ft.

What Is Rough Sawn Lumber

Rough sawn lumber is lumber that has been cut from the log using a bandsaw without being planed smooth.

What Does 4/4 and 8/4 Mean

A “quarter” system is commonly used in the hardwood lumber industry when referring to thickness. 4/4 refers to a 1 inch thick board, 6/4 is 1-1/2 inch, 8/4 is 2 inches, and so on.

Is Cedar Insect Resistant

Cedar has been used as an insect repellent for many years. People have built cedar closets in their homes. They have also used cedar hangers and put cedar blocks in dresser drawers to keep moths away from their clothes. Some studies suggest that the cedar repels insects because of the smell of the cedar oil.
