Question Weights and measures

Does 1 cubic foot = 1 pound of wood?

Thanks.

No, a cubic foot is a measure of volume - and the same as a cubic foot of water would be. The weight is entirely independent and varies based on the density of the wood and how tight that cubit food is packed.

I'd wager that a cubic foot of an average hardwood weighs about 12-15 lbs

Depends on the wood, I guess. 1 cubic foot of Balsa wood would weigh a lot less than 1 cubic foot of Hickory.

That brings up another thought, though. A cord of wood is also a unit of volume related to cut wood, but the weight will vary considerably depending on the species, season, and age of seasoning. I guess a guy has to think about that stuff if he's trailering a winter's worth of cut and split wood.
