Suggest uses for extra hardwood flooring?


I finished my floor install. I have roughly 40 sq ft of prefinished Brazillian redwood left over. I know I should save some in case of damage, but what to do with the rest of it?

Does anyone think it could be used for a bar top? Or even in a herringbone pattern on the front of a bar?

Any other creative suggestions?

Thats about two bundles right. We usally keep one and take the rest back. I always take the Brazilian woods back since there is no need to harbor it due to the impact of harvesting it.

I special ordered it. I dont think the store would take it back, but I could be wrong. I dont know if someone else would want it anyway because it would not be from the same lot as any made later. ???

I once saw on a decorating show, where they put it on a wall in a restaurant.

It was only one wall, and it looked really nice.

Maybe sell it on Craigslist. That's enough for a small foyer or bathroom.

You could cover the top to an old desk. I did this with leftover vinyl wood pattern and put a glass top on it. It looks great.
