Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

A board foot is 1/12 of a cubic foot (because it is 1 inch thick). So convert yo cubic feet then multiply by 12.

1 m³ x (1 ft/0.3048 m)³ = 35.3147 ft³
= 423.776 board feet.

If you work with lumber, especially in quantity, it's handy to know what a board foot is. As you now know there are 423.776 board feet in a cubic meter:

multiply cubic meters x 423.776 to get board feet.
divide board feet by 423.776 to get cubic meters.
