    Look at what I scored!

    A friend of mine had a 4x4 size section of the court from Hilton (post flood unfortunately) that he was gonna get rid of. Say hello to my future new coffee table!

    It would be cool to integrate that into a basement bar or something. How do you plan to use it? Check that I see now - a coffee table. Cool.

    Re: Look at what I scored!

    So I do have a question for everyone out there though.

    Since the floor was obviously underwater for an extended period of time, the boards are somewhat warped. Not really bowed in any direction that wouldn't be impossible to fix up, but as you can probably see in the picture, nearly all of the tongue and groove sections have pulled apart from each other.

    My question to all you fanatics out there is would it be worth my time to remove each individual piece, put them in a clamp and glue them back together and try to restore it to its original condition as best I can? Or would I be better off keeping the "character" of the floor and leaving it as is?

    Nice, I have to admit though with some of the threads going on here, when I clicked, I was hoping it was going to be a picture with you of Ryan Tannehill's wife.

    The only real problem with pulling apart and putting it back together is risking breaking pieces. If I had to guess there is nails or staples holding the boards together. If you can see the nails or whatever is there and you can remove them fairly easily, I would prolly try. There has to be something holding them together, dont just go trying to pull things apart. I think I would maybe design a table that would have a piece of glass over the top and just leave the chunk of floor original.

    I had the same idea with the laying a piece of glass over top, that way it will be protected and wont be hard to clean up. The only problem with that is that the boards are warped up at one end so the glass wouldn't be able to lay flat.

    The painted boards are stapled to a piece of plywood directly underneath. Looking at it, I don't think it would be that hard to pull everything apart, but it would be time consuming.

    You can remove the broken splines and replace them with splines used by wood floor installers. Do you have a 10" table saw? That's what you need. Cut off the splines. Cut a new groove with a dado blase and insert the spines. Glue up. You'll be good to go.

    Re: Look at what I scored!

    Leave it just the way it is for goodness sake. Why ruin the character?

    I would build a shadow box style of coffee table. Perhaps, you could make a long coffee table, 2x4, and 2 2x2s.

    Do a shadow box style where the floor sits inside a box, and then you could route an edge for the glass to set in. Then, if you ever get any cool ISU collectibles, you could place them in there on top of the floor.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Doing it this way you can build it just tall enough to where the glass doesnt sit on the floor itself.
