Cubic Metre is a volume measurement used for timber sales.

One Cubic Metre of timber is equal to a length of 1 Metre, a width of 1 Metre and a thickness of 1 Metre.

1M x 1M x 1M = one cubic metre or
1000mm x 1000mm x 1000mm = one cubic metre

A Cubic Metre of timber is calculated by using the nominal value of the thickness of the timber, the nominal value of the width of the timber, multiplied by the actual length of the timber.


  1. Enter the Cubic Metre Price
  2. Click on "Add a Timber"
  3. Using millimetres enter the values of thickness and width of the board in their respective fields.
  4. Enter the board length value in metres.
  5. Enter the number of boards required.
