There is a wealth of information related to the handling and processing of wood products at the Woodweb.

There are a number of charts used to estimate the board footage available in a log.  The Doyle Scale is commonly used when buying and selling in log form.  The International 1/4" Scale is used to estimate the yield when milling with a 1/4" thick circular blade.  The bandsaw has a much thinner blade so there is less waste and will usually yield slightly more than the International Scale estimate.
