Over the weekend my Dad asked if I could plane and cut a piece of oak flooring to size for him. It is to be used as a bar to hang towels from in a bathroom. It will be mounted in a ceramic holder on each end, which are glued to the wall with mastic.
In return for this pretty simple operation, he gave me a bunde of oak tounge and grove flooring to keep. This was from the house he built for us right before I was born.... so this stuff is over 30 years old. Some of it has a little water damage on the end, but overall it is in good condition. nothing a quick run through the planer and a sanding wouldn't take care of.
