Maybe it's been said here before, but I don't remember ever seeing it. I own apartment rental units that I'm currently renovating. New red oak flooring is being installed. The other day I noticed one of my workers gathering up a bunch of pieces of the flooring and asked what he's doing with them. He tells me they were small or damaged pieces he's going to throw away. Well, now I have a big hefty filled with solid, dry, red oak. It's not the mother load, but it's something. We always talk about hooking up with tree cutters to gather the remains. What about flooring companies that throw away seasoned oak everyday.
