Has anyone worked with old bowling alley lanes?
We are considering using a salvaged bowling alley lane as a butcher block island in our kitchen remodel. We found some beautiful, unfinished pieces at a local salvage store that would need to be cut to size and finished. I've done a bit of online research, and have found some very nice photos of countertops that people have made. But I also found a post from one person saying the material can be very difficult to cut and work with because there is a good deal of metal within the lanes. Does anyone have any experience with this?
