  • Do you have a plan from which these images are pulled? If so, what does it call for? If not, well, you can add up the lengths just the same as someone here could do it for you.

  • You need a cut list. It's easy to make your own, no special tools required. Just write down all the parts for each piece in a table along with rough dimensions, final dimensions, etc. From that you can calculate total board feet. Most people will add an extra 10-30% for waste because it's a lot easier than trying to plan out what to do with every board before you even buy the lumber.
