This will allow you to make proportioned shapes within the circle. For example stars, triangles, octagons, etc. To find the divisions, multiply the diameter of the circle by the following multipliers.
For example:
6. Board Feet: A board foot is essentially a measure of wood, figured on the called size, not the actual finished size. Therefore a 2" x 4" x 8" contains 5.33 bd. ft. The theory is that you pay for what the mill started with before the wood is dried and planed. Thickness" x Width" x Length in feet, divided by 12 = board feet. T" x W" x L" ÷ 12 = Board ft. Thickness" x Width" x Length in inches divided by 144 = bd. ft. (T" x W" x L") ÷ 144 = Board ft.
