If you have a board that is 1 by 12 inches that is 10 foot long you will have 10 inches of board feet. This a math problem.

lineal is the length board feet is 1ft wide X 1 ft long X 1 inch thick = 1 board foot

Linear footage is a one dimensional measurment. Board footage is volume. one board foot is 1 inch thick by 12 inches square. 1" x 12" x 12" = 144 cubic inches of wood or one board foot.

Though "board foot" sounds a measurement of area it is actually a measurement of volume. 1 board foot equals 144 cubic inches of wood. Length x Width x Thickness = Board Feet Therefore a board that is 12 inches x 12 inches x 1 inch is 1 board foot. But so is a board that is 12 x 6 x 2 However, you must take into account the fact that all lumber is actually a different size than it says it is. A 2 x 12 is actually 1-1/2 by 11-1/2. So instead of a board foot of 1 x 12 being 12 inches long, it would be: 144 / (3/4 x 11-1/2) or 13.22 inches long.

1 foot = 0.3048 metres.

A piece of wood 1" thick by 12" wide by 1' long, or the equivalent volume. The width and thickness are often planed down some. So, let's say you have a 6" wide board 2' long and 1" thick. That is 1 board foot. Or, let' s say you have a 6" wide hunk of lumber 2" thick and 1' long. That is 1 board foot. Or, to get out of the box, here, say you have a 4" by 4" hunk of lumber that is 0.75 feet long (9") long. That is 1 board foot. In other words, if you multiply the width in inches by the thickness in inches by the length in feet, you have the number of board feet.
