Our lumber pricing is based on board feet (BF). A BF is a unit of measure that is equal to 1 inch by 12 inches by 1 foot. You calculate BF just like you write a standard board, then divide that by 12. For example: if you want to know how many BF are in a 4 x 6 x 10 you multiple that together: 4 x 6 x 10 = 240 and then divide that by 12, 240 / 12 = 20 BF. To determine the price, you multiple the BF by the price/BF, so in this case a 4 x 6 x 10 is $.60/BF, so the price per piece is $12.00.
The chart below has some of our standard sizes and prices in Pine & Poplar lumber already calculated for you. The first column is the price per BF. The next grouping is the size of lumber. The next column is the BF and the final column is the price per piece. If you don’t see a standard size on the chart, you can figure your BF and then estimate where it might fall in the chart for price.
For Standard Oak, our price per BF is $.80/BF for 4", 6", & 8" and $1.00 for 10" and 12" (the wider stock is more expensive per BF).
