P.O.A

 

A rough guide to calculating timber volumes and costs.

volume of timber is length x breadth x thickness
cubic feet - if measurements are in inches then divide by 1728
cubic meters - make sure measurements are in meters.

Remember
If you are wanting to have a planed finish on your timber you will need to start with a thicker piece. So use the thicker size in your calculations

If you are using kiln dried timber then the chances are you will not find a board the exact size you want, so you will also have some off cuts. You can minimise this by careful selection but you will need to take this into consideration in costing your project.

Make the most of you timber

Timber has natural properties from flexibility to strength - using the right timber can make life much easier. For instance Scottish oak and larch are naturally durable, so using these timbers outside reduces cost in maintenance. For more information see our section on all about hardwoods
