Hi Ged

If the wood is measured in inches multiply the length x width x depth and divide by 1728

For example a piece 24 inches x 6 inches x 6 inches would be:

24x6x6 = 864

Cu ft = 864/1728 = 0.5 cu ft

Hope that helps

Cheers Dave

Hi Ged, If your interested I have a simple spreadsheet for excel that will, from a cutting list calculate the cubic footage of timber. The only thing is that you have to enter the cutting list in inches.
 
If you want me to send you the spreadsheet the PM me your email address and I will send it to you. The same goes for anyone that is interested.

Cant you take it to Spain or is there some restriction on importing Timber?
There are Yacht transporters which have room on the trailer which might be worth considering. May bee you have looked at that sort of deal.
What area in Spain are you?
