# Wood Finishing Calculator

This calculator helps woodworkers estimate the amount of finish (such as stain or varnish) they will need to complete a project based on its size and the desired level of coverage.

The user enters the length, width, and depth of their project in inches and the desired coverage in square feet per gallon into the form on the web page. The calculator then uses JavaScript to calculate the volume of the project in cubic inches by multiplying the length, width, and depth together. It then converts this volume to gallons by dividing by 1728 (the number of cubic inches in a gallon).

Finally, the calculator divides the volume in gallons by the desired coverage to determine the total amount of finish needed. This result is then displayed on the web page.
