years ago, I just happened upon a bowling alley that was being torn down
and the 1” rock maple alley floors were being just ripped up and sold.
I got a pickup load for $50 and I have no idea how many cutting boards
and counter tops I produced out of it. of course, you had to work around
the splits and dings – but for the price, it was worth the trouble.

so in addition to looking for hardwood sources, cruise around your area for demolition
projects that may yield some very useful hardwood for the shop and home projects.
or even stop by your local bowling alley and ask them about their flooring contractors.
