Firewood & Cord Calcuations

How to figure out how much wood you've got!

FHC Cord Calculator














A cord of firewood measures 4' x 4' x 8' and contains 128 cubic feet. You can calculate the size of a stack in cubic feet by measuring the height, depth, and length of the stack and multiplying one by the other two. For instance:

4' high x 1.5' deep x 48' long = 288 cubic feet

To figure out how many cord is in that same stack, simple divide it's size in cubic feet by the 128 cubic feet that are in a cord.

288 cubic feet divided by 128 cubic feet = 2.25 cord

    Handy device. Can one be made to measure a holzen haus? Formula is height x pi x radius squared. read that a traditional 7' tall by 8' diameter is 2 cords.

    Handy dandy for sure. I like the log calculator too, and wonder how that one works. I've used the formula for finding cylinder volume as a guess-timate for the cubic feet in a log..., which will obviously be less than when it's split and stacked with all the air space.
