The Board Feet Easy Calculator is a simple, and easy to use, application for calculating board feet. If you don't work with wood then this application is of no use to you. If you do have the need to calculate board feet, this easy to use calculator may be just what you're looking for. Simply enter the length, width, and thickness, and the calculator will tell you the board feet for the given dimensions. Optionally, you can specify the number of pieces, a waste percentage, and the cost per board foot, and the calculator will produce the total board feet, the board feet including waste, and the total cost. Although there are other free board feet calculators - and I've tried them all - they either did not have all the options I needed, and/or had user interface quirks. So, I created my own. I use this calculator often and find it handy, so I want to share it with any other woodworkers that need an easy to use board feet calculator.
What's new in version 2.0.1
- Fixed a major issue with iOS 7 and above, where the top of the input screen moved up and under the navigation bar, preventing the entry of the length and waste values. - Fixed a bug that prevented the calculated waste amount from being added to the the total Board Feet when displayed in the board list or in the project. Only affects users that are using both the project capability and a percentage waste value in calculating their board feet. - Fixed a couple of annoying interface issues, such as displaying the keyboard on startup (which covered the tab bar until a calculation was performed or the calculator reset). This made the projects functionality clumsy to get to. Also, automatically set focus to fields when possible to eliminate a tap on the field.
