Maple and Yellow Pine sections 42” wide with lengths of 8’-10’-12’-16’. Thickness runs from 1 1/2”-2 5/8”.
Been in dry storage for eight years, since tearing down alley. I’m 7 miles south of Wichita, Ks. $10 per foot for pine and $25 per foot for maple. If interested e-mail me and I will send pictures. Thanks

I wouldn’t think pine would have been hard enough for a bowling ally.

The first 16’ where you stand to deliver the ball is maple and the first 16’ of the lane is maple. Turns to pine up to the last 6’ where the pins are and that to is maple. The lanes are constructed with tongue and groove fit up, glued and nailed. The wood is stacked on edge with it being true 1” x 2 5/8”. Each section is very heavy. Weighed one 16’ maple section and it weighed 380#.

Wow, would love to have that when I was making a workbench. I used to work in bowling alley and during the summer months a crew would come in to refinish the lanes. The lane, edge to edge is actually “dished” slightly per ABC spec’s. Just an FYI….
