Making some wood work using 2 1/4" hardwood flooring planks
 
I am having new hardwood flooring put on but after the contractor put on about 80sq-ft of area my wife doesn't like the color. So we have the contractor rip those flooring out and replace with another color flooring. So now on my hands I have ~100 sq-ft of 5/8" thick, 2 1/4" wide oak flooring planks. I am figuring that I might be able to build something from them. Any ideas and suggestions?:thumbup:

Don't make anything for your wife, because she isn't going to like the color.

Nice kiln dried hardwood like that makes excellent kindling for a fireplace. The finish gives it extra firepower.

How about an inlaid cutting board for the kitchen counter?

And they should look great as cabinet door panels.
