Thanks for the tips guys, figures it’d rain today, regardless, I’m a bit anxious about getting some of this stuff. I have a generator, circ-saw, sawzall, whatever I need to cut it down for truckbed length, but just didn’t care to do all that just for pine. New kiln-dried pine is inexpensive enough.

- crzytexn – guess by mini-roubu I was just referring to a smaller than the norm version. I have a 2-car garage that’s a dedicated woodshop now. I also think it’d be cool to build my Grandon a mini-roubu from this bowling alley lane maybe, similar to the LJ mini-bench someone posted on here this week I think.

Wish I was better versed and experienced with identifying the wood mediums, I’m decent with some of it that I’ve worked with a lot, but the underside of these lanes are dripping with glue all over the place and 30 coats of old yellowed clear on the top, lol…tough to tell the grain.

This facility I’m guessing for the area was built in the 80s maybe.
