Estimating Log Yields

Don Stephan
Is there a general rule of thumb for a minimum diameter of cherry logs that will be band milled into 4/4, 6/4, and 8/4 thicknesses if sapwood would not be incorporated in furniture?

Is there an average yield in 4/4, 6/4, or 8/4 board feet for a 10' cherry log of that minimum diameter?

I understand this would be only a rough estimate. Thanks.
