I have a small section of that, about 2' x 4'. Hard Maple is a good choice for butcher blocks and counter tops anyways, but I wouldn't want the maintenance of that one...

I knew a guy who got a bunch of old bowling alley and just cut it into ten foot sections and stacked it out back of his house, completely uncovered. I tried to buy a section of it to do something like this, but he wouldn't sell it at any price. It was still there the last time I was in the neighborhood, and I'm sure it probably still is, and is completely ruined by now.

Hoarders. They'll take something useful like that and just keep it somewhere 'til it turns into junk.

Have any of actually tried cutting a section of bowling alley before? They're put together with nails like steel cuts and there's a lot of them.

They replace the lanes every so often, like 10 years or so, newer ones are going plastic, and they need replacing more often.
Cool - I only hear about it when it's a demo. Maybe the plastic will be easier to cut up, but I'd have to work with a chunk to see what to do with it. Hopefully less nails than wood.
