 Here's an easy calculator: http://www.sakrete.com/products/calculators.cfm/selectedCalculator/Concrete#concrete The weird thing about this calculator is that everything is in feet except for the depth, which is in inches. Be careful! Unless you're a long truck ride, somewhere you can't get it, consider ready-mix concrete. It make a job MUCH easier, saves hours of back breaking work, and you get a mix that is probably a lot better than you can do yourself. Mickey N4MB (Just poured a base - 3.5' x 3.5' x 7' nominally, hole is actually bigger. \$400 for concrete was a deal compared to mixing 200 bags!)
