Lineal Foot

Some types of wood are sold at a specific width and “per lineal foot” of length. This is in contrast to “per board foot,” which is a volume measure, and can be used to tally lumber of random widths.

Example: If a 1′ X 4′ X 10′ is priced by the lineal foot, multiply the price by 10′ in order to determine the price.
