A piece of wood 1" thick by 12" wide by 1' long, or the equivalent volume. The width and thickness are often planed down some. So, let's say you have a 6" wide board 2' long and 1" thick. That is 1 board foot. Or, let' s say you have a 6" wide hunk of lumber 2" thick and 1' long. That is 1 board foot. Or, to get out of the box, here, say you have a 4" by 4" hunk of lumber that is 0.75 feet long (9") long. That is 1 board foot. In other words, if you multiply the width in inches by the thickness in inches by the length in feet, you have the number of board feet.

How is cubic board feet in timber converted into linear board feet in timber?

To convert cubic board feet to linear board feet, you need to divide the cubic footage by the thickness or width of the timber in feet. For example, if you have 100 cubic board feet of timber that is 1 foot thick, you would have 100 linear board feet. If the timber is varying in thickness or width, you would need to account for this variation when calculating linear board feet.
