The Forestry Forum has calculators for estimating log volume, board feet, weight, etc.  Check out the Forestry Forum Toolbox.

There is a wealth of information related to the handling and processing of wood products at the Woodweb.

There are a number of charts used to estimate the board footage available in a log.  The Doyle Scale is commonly used when buying and selling in log form.  

The International 1/4" Scale is used to estimate the yield when milling with a 1/4" thick circular blade. The bandsaw has a much thinner blade so there is less waste and will usually yield slightly more than the International Scale estimate.
