    15,000 square feet of reclaimed maple flooring.Beautiful old growth material from
    turn of the century textile mill(1904).
    Dimensions are 3/4" thickness X 3 1/2" width in random lengths from 2 to 12 feet.
    $1.25 per square foot for 5000+ square feet or more.
    Thanks for looking,

    Doesn't sound like a bad price, but I have never used recovered lumber before either. I watched a show once where Norm Abram did and there was a lot of nail holes and stuff. Personally I thought Norm could have chosen his pieces better, but he chose to bowtie the defects which I did not care for.

    Still there is no getting away from the fact that the wood has character. We have old houses here that having floor boards and stuff 2 feet wide and made out of Pumpkin Pine,or what amounts to Virgin Pine from before the settlers landed. The grain is amazing. So tight it took a magnifying glass to see the lines. That is amazing for Eastern White Pine. I bet this wood is the same way.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    That's not a bad price for reclaimed wood though, if you think it's a good deal buy it Don.
    I think I'll hang on a bit more Alan. I wanted you fellers and gals to see it.
    I don't know wood prices very well.
