How to accurately calculate the weight of wood


How do you measure the weight of timber without physically weighing it? The most traditional way of doing it is to first research the density of the timber, taking into account the moisture content of the timber, age of the timber, the timber source location, how long and even if its been kin dried. Then use the width height and thickness of the timber and multiply it by the quantity required. Then repeat this process of each timber you need the weight. Or you could simply use an online tool.
