Board Feet Plan­ner

WOOD - - SHOP TIPS - Pro­duced by Craig Ruegseg­ger

(iPhone only) This pow­er­ful app tracks ma­te­ri­als and their costs for a project. Start by en­ter­ing the cost of each type of wood you plan to use; for ex­am­ple, 5/4 black wal­nut at $7.24/board foot (bf) and 4/4 po­plar at $2.64/bf. Then set up a project such as “Ta­ble.” Type in the parts needed for that project with their sizes and quan­ti­ties, and choos­ing the part’s ma­te­rial from those you en­tered. The app to­tals the project cost, and you can even email a shop­ping and cut list with all of that info in a tidy ta­ble.
