 PIPESTONE WOOD 
     One requirement for the Pipestone Award, each camper, except fifth year candidates, is expected to provide at least one cubic foot of Pipestone Wood. This may be fulfilled by bringing the wood to summer camp tightly bundled. Pipestone Wood is hardwood only, (no pine) which has lost all its bark naturally thus it burns quietly and smoke free. It should be reasonably straight with no branches or protruding stubs. Approximately twelve inches long (broken, not sawn), no thinner than the little finger and no thicker than the thumb.
     Fifth year candidates need not bring wood to camp but should complete part of their leadership requirement by closely supervising the quality and quantity of wood collected by other campers. Wood bundles deemed acceptable by the troop senior patrol leader will be placed on the “Pipestone Wood Trailer” when you arrive at camp.

Measuring your Pipestone Wood – How Math is Important In Your Everyday Life
     The requirement is to provide “one cubic foot” of bundled firewood. This can be difficult to measure since your bundle will be round and the requirement given is in cubes (square). So scouts, let’s think about this. I’ll help you, using geometry and algebra from school, we can figure this a couple ways so you may bring a good measure of wood to camp.
     You should know, a cubic foot will measure in inches, 12 long x 12 width x 12 height. First a given, the pieces of wood in your bundle should measure approximately 12 inches long. So all we will consider here is the end diameter or the circumference measurement of the bundle to give you the sufficient amount of wood. 
     
The DIAMETER of a bundle can be calculated from the area in inches. The end face is 12 x 12 = 144 square inches. The Area of a circle is calculated using the formula, A = ∏r² (Area = Pi times the radius squared). We have the area (144) and we know Pi (3.14), so plug in what you know.
144 = 3.14 · r · r   Solve for ‘r’.
144/3.14 = r · r
45.86 = r · r
6.77 = r, the radius. Round the radius to 6.75 and double it to give you the diameter = 13.5
DIAMETER = 13.5 inches.
     The CIRCUMFERENCE of a bundle can be derived from the calculated diameter (13.5) in inches. The Circumference of a circle is calculated using the formula C = ∏ · d. (Circumference = Pi times the diameter). We calculated the diameter (13.5) and we know Pi (3.14), so again plug in what you know.
C = 3.14 · 13.5
C = 42.39   Round your result to 42.5
CIRCUMFERENCE = 42.5 inches 

So here you go. Pull out a tape measure. To have a bundle meet the minimum requirement of 1 cubic foot it should measure:
Length = 12 inches
Diameter = 13-1/2 inches or
Circumference = 42-1/2 inches.
