# Wood Work Estimation For Building

## How do you calculate wood work?

Step1: Measure the width of your item in inches and then multiply times the height.
Step 2. Multiply the width and height of all sides to be coated (including the top).
Step 3: Add all of these totals together and divide by 144 to determine the total square feet you will need to cover.
The calculations are as follows :
1. HORIZONTAL TOP MEMBER (1 NO )
2. 3’+ 4 1/2”+ 41/2” + 8”+ 8” = 5’1”
3. VERTICAL SIDE MEMBERS ( 2 NOS )
4. 2 ( 7′ + 41/2”+ 4” ) = 7’81/2”
5. VOLUME :
6. (2 X 7’81/2”X 41/2” X 61/2”) + (5’1”X 41/2” X 61/2”)
7. =2 X 7 X (8.5/12) X 4.5 X 6.5 /144 + 5. …
8. = 3.128 +1.031 = 4.16 CFT.
