A few years ago, I had a flood (I did not leave the bath running—honest!). Some of the downstairs floor needed replacing. I salvaged the boards and used them to create a bookcase in a spare bedroom that I was converting into an office.
Not, a very exciting piece of work, but it does prove the value of never throwing any wood away. All of the shelves bar the centre one are adjustable. I made a simple jig out of a piece of scrap ply to space the holes evenly.
I also used some of these floorboards to build a TV stand for my step-daughter. The sides are frame and panel construction, the panels and back are from 6ml mahogany veneered mdf. The shelves and top are half inch ply. A simple enough project, but nice to find a use for those pieces of scrap wood.
