Its excellent working properties have made Red Oak popular throughout American history for furniture construction and cabinetry. It machines well with moderate blunting of equipment. Red Oak holds nails and screws well, although pre-boring is recommended for best results. Red Oak is a very hard, heavy wood with good stiffness and excellent crushing strength. Red Oak stains to an attractive finish with stains.

Board Foot Calculator
The easiest and most common way to calculate board feet is to use a board foot calculator.
Several different board foot calculators are available online or check your app store and download to your phone.

To calculate board feet of lumber, use the following formula:

    Board Feet = Width (inches) x Thickness (inches) x Length (FEET) divided by 12.
    Example – For a piece of lumber 2 inches thick, 6 inches wide and 10 feet long, you calculate board feet as follows:
    Board Feet = (6 x 2 x 10) divide by 12 = 10 board feet.

If your order requires specifics, call to verify we have exactly what you need.
Example: If you order 100 board feet and need one board 8'6" that is at least 8" wide and one board 10' at least 6" wide – be sure to state exactly what you need.
