Bowling alley's make sure are sturdy platforms, and heavy too. I ripped a 7' section to 2' wide for one of our benches. I never new that they were constructed with so many 12 and 16 penny nails. The negative is I cannot drill holes for a holdfast or dogs for fear of encountering nails. When I did the rip, it was necessary to use a demolition blade.
Thanks for the tour.

The bowling alley bench top does have a lot of steel in it. I have drilled bench dog holes with a bit that I sharpen after use. Just go slow. The floor is a double floor with the dust collection ducting and 220 power running through it. Two floors also gives me better insulation when it's really cold. I love my hand tools but enjoy the power tools too.
