BoardCalc is a general-purpose calculator
available for Android ®
Anyone who uses a tape measure or a ruler might find
BoardCalc useful. Measurements today come as a mixed
bag of metric, inches, feet, fractions, percentages

the answer on a ruler
marked in 16ths of an inch, then BoardCalc is your

the board feet of lumber from two or three
measurements of a board (any units). Add that to a
running total in calculator memory. Work easily with
length, area or volume. Want to find the edge of a 5mm
shelf pin hole that is centered 2" in from the front
of the shelf upright, in 32nds of an inch?
SawlogCalc is a tool to

Give it the small diameter, length and species of a log, and it will estimate the
weight and calculate the board feet of lumber
according to Doyle, Scribner or International log
rule. It can keep a running total of weight &
yield. The Android version can keep multiple lists of
saw logs, in detail, and export the lists (pro
version). More than 100 North American species of tree
are included. If you run a
sawmill or deal with one, this might be a
