This tool helps you easily calculate the linear footage of wood needed for your project.

## How to Use the Linear Foot Calculator

To use this calculator, enter the length, width, and height of a piece of wood in the appropriate fields. Specify the quantities if you have more than one piece of wood. Click the “Calculate” button to get the total linear feet.

## Explanation

This linear foot calculator helps you determine the total length of wood in linear feet. The calculator takes the length of each piece of wood and multiplies it by the number of pieces. The result is the total length of wood in linear feet.

## Limitations

- This calculator assumes that all pieces of wood have the same dimensions.
- The dimension inputs are required, and the calculator will not function if any dimension is missing or not a valid number.
- The results may not be accurate if used for shapes other than rectangular or pieces with irregular dimensions.
