I meet a hardwood floor installer the other day, and asked what he did with the leftovers, He said that they just throw them in the dumpster. I asked him to save some for me to use in the shop, and the next thing I know He brings over 200 Sq Ft of 3/4 inch oak. 3-4 ft in long and 4 in wide. Once planed and trimed to remove the t&g, I have over 70 boards 3-4 ft long, and 5/8 thick and 3 1/2 in wide. So, be nice to your local flooring guy.
