The formula used to calculate board feet is:

\[ \text{Board Feet (BF)} = \frac{\text{Thickness (in)} \times \text{Width (in)} \times \text{Length (in)}}{144} \]

This calculator converts the dimensions of lumber in inches to board feet by multiplying the thickness, width, and length in inches, and then dividing by 144.

Steps to calculate the board feet:

- Enter the thickness of the lumber in inches.
- Enter the width of the lumber in inches.
- Enter the length of the lumber in inches.
- The formula calculates the volume in board feet.

Let's assume the following values:

- Thickness = 2 inches
- Width = 6 inches
- Length = 144 inches

Using the formula:

\[ \text{Board Feet (BF)} = \frac{2 \times 6 \times 144}{144} = 12 \text{ BF} \]
