 We have demolished a bowling alley that was built in late 70's and moved the wood lanes into a new bowling alley project.  Installed as wainscoting- idea is being presented by the architect. As standard bowling lane they are 42" high, 2 3/4" thick solid maple and solid pine. weights about 35 lbs per linear foot. Some pieces were 22 LF.long 770 lbs. We trimmed with custom milled maple cap and corner to finish.One less item off the landfill.

    Very cool. I saw some old lanes at a reclaim place, but they want $100 bucks a lineal foot for them.

    I used to install, remove & re-locate bowling lanes and machines. What you did there had to have been a nasty project though you did a great job with it. On lane removals we used to sell them on site as work bench tops and we'd cut them to requested length, always had people in the parking lot in their trucks waiting for lane sections. I remember vividly the fun of splitting the case hardened nails lengthwise when cutting those lanes up!
