 8th March 2011, 05:32 AM #45 diyAudio Member   Join Date: Oct 2010 4' = 122ish cm 8' = 243ish cm So each sheet is 2.96 meters square, so 5 cubic meters means 1.68m tall stack of 4' x 8' sheets of bamboo plywood. So in theory a 1680mm tall stack gets you 84 sheets at 20mm thickness. Adjust the number of sheets by the thickness of the material, or by changing the dimension of the sheets you order. Hopefully my sleep deprived math isn't wrong. I based the pricing upon that minimum order and your price range. \$1,100 per cubic meter = \$5,500 / 84 = \$65.50 per sheet \$1,500 per cubic meter = \$7,500 / 84 = \$89.30 per sheet Again, if the thickness is different or overall sheet dimensions are different that will impact your cost per sheet. But I guess that works as a rough guide.

To figure the price at the local lumber shop, add shipping from China, distrib markup, shipping to the dealer, dealer markup.
