The board-foot is a specialized unit of volume for measuring lumber in the United States and Canada. It is the amount of wood in a 12-inch long 1-inch-by-12-inch board (or 1 foot × 1 inch × 1 foot, about 30 × 2½ × 30 cm³), or the equivalent (144 cubic inches, 2.36 litres). Unfortunately, it is not truly a measure of volume, due to nominal and actual measures used in the lumber business. In addition, the definition is different for hardwood and softwood. Note that the cf of a 2x6x18' board is 1.03, not 1.5 because the actual dimensions are 1.5x5.5x18'. The calculations here do not apply to nominal lumber sizes which are actually slightly less.
The cubic metre (symbol m³) is the SI derived unit of volume. It is the volume of a cube with edges one metre in length. Older equivalents were the stere and the kilolitre. The deprecation of the stere began in 1978, when the CIPM marked it (and several other metric units) as "undesirable" where not already in use, and strongly encouraged their discontinuation; in the United States, it was legally deprecated in 1982 (Federal Register, February 26, 1982, 47 FR 8399-8400).
