Southern pine weighs 34.4 pounds per 1 cubic foot, and 1 cubic foot is 1,728 cubic inches. Thus, the beam in this example measures 1.8 cubic feet, times 34.4 pounds per cubic foot, or 64.5 pounds. Tip

In it, they state that softwood plywood should weigh approximately 3 pounds per square foot, per inch of thickness. Actual plywood weight is slightly less, as the specification is for pre-sanded sheets.

Engineers have rounded-off weight calculations for plywood to square foot calculations, and have decided that, for engineering purposes, a generic square foot of 3/4-inch-thick hardwood plywood weighs 2.3 pounds.A 4-by-8 sheet of plywood equals 32 square feet, so 32 times 2.3, is just over 70 pounds per sheet.
32 feet square, 2 stories. He added on a bit for the car port and the small slab floor under a laundry floor. Works out to roughly 121 pounds per square foot of footprint, or 60 pounds per square foot total living space.
Product Weights Lumber and Panel Weights The two charts below provide pound-per-square foot weights for a variety of rough lumber species and structural panels including plywood, MDF, particle board and melamine.

The average dry weight of each species is calculated at 8% moisture content. It is listed in pounds per cubic foot or kilograms per cubic meter. To find the average dry weight per board foot, divide the pounds per cubic foot by 12.
