Q: What is the weight of wood? I am interested in aspen, oak, maple and pine.

A: Do you want the weight per cubic foot or per board foot? At what moisture content (MC)?

To answer your question, assume that the wood is at 7 percent MC. Further, in order to calculate the weight per board foot, assume that the lumber is planed to 13/16-inch thickness and averages 7-1/2 inches wide. Below is data for a few species.
