You would do something like this:

cubic meters / (board width in meters * board thickness in meters) = linear meters

linear meters * 3.28 = linear foot

linear foot / 1000 = thousand board foot

About the only thing to keep in mind, is to convert the board width and thickness to meters first, or the first formula will not be correct.
