Forum rules
Dear 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 FaceBook page

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

The only way this would be possible is if you know the thickness of the board (board feet only gives you area) and the type of wood. Knowing the type, you could guess the average density of the wood. Knowing the volume of the wood (area in board feet times thickness) you could then divide by the density to find the weight.
