Once upon a time several wooddorkers met at a bowling alley.
I'd heard they were disposing of the wood from the lanes, and posted that
fact here in the Wreck.
Paully Rad, David P. (the OTHER Jewish carpenter) and another fellow (I
think) and I all went down to get some.
We loaded 6-8 pinsets (the last section of the alley, where the pins set) of
hard maple and the plastic markers in the usual triangular form.
Anyhow... we paid twenty bucks apiece for them, and away we went.
Pauly actually made his work bench from them, (I'm not sure if David finally
did or not (there's something about memory and advancing age...).
Paul's story was a classic, but believed to be lost when so much of the old
Wreck threads seemed to just disappear.
The bottom line is: They'd be a bear to dismantle, what with many hardened
ring shank nails, but it is hard maple.
They don't HAVE to be dismantled... I've seen tables made from them as they
are, but "cleaned up a bit".
I have 4 of them still
And they are FREE. If you'd like to visit Englewood, Fl. I'll even help you
load them (you'll need it!).
I'm happy to give them away in Paul's memory.
