My local hardwood supplier talks in cubic feet of cubic metres
are there any tools/software or does someone have the caluclations
Example: 40 stair treads 48 1/4" X 12" X 1" And hanging strip 48 1/4 x
3" x 1". (L shape tread) .
So how many cubic feet/metres of wood do I need?
To get supplies in a usable form, you still don't want to buy them in
cubic measurements. To change inches to centimeters, multiply by 2.54
Ancient Chinese proverb: Give a man a fish and you feed him for one day. Teach
him how to fish, and you feed him for the rest of his life.
So here's your fishing lesson.
Volume = length x width x thickness
One cubic foot = 12" x 12" x 12" = (you work it out) cubic inches.
One foot = 0.3045 meters thus one cubic foot = 0.3045 x 0.3045 x 0.3045 cubic
The calculation is left to the student as an exercise.

Someone around here used to say:
"Build a man a fire and you warm him for a day; set a man on fire and you
warm him for the rest of his life."
I'd attribute it to the original author if I could remember who it was. I've
gotten a laugh from that every time I've used it.
