Over at Benchcrafted, the Roubo split top bench plans call for about 100 BF of 8/4 lumber in the finished product. If choosing your own boards, plan to buy 150 BF to account for waste, etc. If ordering, order 200 BF so that you can select your boards from the pack and still account for waste.

Pricing is generally location specific. In the Midwest, 8/4 hard maple should be less than $5/bf… or at least around that price.
