1” times 4” times 120”(10 ) =480 cubic inches.
divided by 144= 3.33 cubic feet or 3.33 board feet per board.
3.33 bd ft times 10 boards=33.33 board feet total

board foot is simply cubic feet splained differently

theres board foot calculatin machines available on the WWW to use for free,too.

oh, and welcome to the forum.

Just a small correction to the bolded line above. You are correct that it is 3.33 board feet but board feet are not equivalent to cubic feet. There are 12 board feet (12”x12”x1”) per cubic foot (12”x12”x12”)
