...and after all the explanations if they are still that way, get a pedicure
and see if they take interest again.
A board foot is defined as a 1' x 1' x 1" or combinations to get 144
cu inch of material. When I go to the lumber store a 1" thick board
is actually 3/4".
When I see lumber listed as 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, 8/4, etc, what should I
actually be able measue it out as?
If I have wood that measures as 2" thick with my tapemeasure, how
would I express that in quarters?
This likely has come up before, but I just got into discussion with a
50%er engineer who just absolutely "knows" because the degree in his
pocket says so.
