salvage pine

Boy I love a bargain.....I often salvage discarded material for use or re-use.......

But I have to admit that flooring would be a poor use for sawmill discards......Flat cuts/sap streaks/knots/wane/shorts/warp.....all these defects would challenge your time to process and install and eventual success of the flooring process.......

A better use would be "projects" where the character of the wood could be put to creative use to enhance a project......flooring is just too demanding .....UNLESS of course you really found the 'motherlode' of discarded opinion....doug
