- Select a sample of wood that is approximately 12% moisture content, with all edges being true.
- Carefully measure the Length, Width and Thickness dimensions of the sample, preferably using a caliper. Convert the Length, Width and Thickness measurements to feet (ft.).
- Carefully measure the weight of the sample, to the tenth of an ounce. Convert the weight to pounds (lbs.).
- Using the volume and the weight of the sample, and the weight of a cubic foot of water, calculate the specific gravity.
