My office building was remodeling a small office. The contractor gave me about 50 ft of hardwood baseboard that he didnt want to reuse. It has been stained and has a number of finish nail holes. I can take the stain off with a planer it’s all about an inch thick. Just wondering what are some ideas since I might have to cut it up to lose the nail holes! Thanks,

use it for jigs and shop fixtures if youre concerned about the appearance of the nail holes. I made a plane till out of reclaimed pine and it looks great with the old stanley planes packing it full.
