Turns out I can't just refinish the floors. No amount of sanding and staining will truly restore the 104 year old fir that's in the kitchen.

This bums me out.

What's crazy is that it almost costs as much to sand and refinish the floor as it would to install new floors. So I'm getting bids this weekend.

This got me thinking about how I'd love to have some sort of tribute/relic to the history of the house in my new kitchen. So what if I did something with some of the old floor boards before they toss them. That may be cool (or it may just be another project to tack on the list...).

Taking creative suggestions on any creative things I could do with some old fir. If nothing else, I'm thinking cornhole!
