Show Topic: Bug Infested Wood, Reusing Old Flooring & Staying Motivated


Question here: How do you make sure you aren't bringing bug infested wood into your lumber storage collection? They can be so small you can't even see them?

Scott Curtis:

I'm having my kitchen renovated and we are replacing the 1950's 2.5" wide oak flooring. I'm loathe to throw out the old flooring. Any ideas what some of it could be repurposed into?

Tyrel Weston:

think you guys threw out the idea once but... what's the music of the week? Or your go to put your head down and work jam.

Blēkat Woodwork:

Question: Do ya'll ever get into a funk and loose motivation to get in the shop or come up with new ideas?

Joke of the week

From Jeff Gruff: 

Did you hear about the board that got arrested?
