It was a joke?! Dude, I just took my BoardSmith to the gym and did a few laps with it, what the f*ck!!
You must b kidding me ...
These things show up in various lengths occasionally on Craigslist.
I have even seen sections of bowling lanes for sale (prolly exceptionally tough on the knives)
Don't like the size or need resurfacing?
Just take it to your local mill like ThEoRy said and if you aren't in a rush they should get around to it during a slow time.
All I can say is: I luv this table
I was lucky enough to a get a maple end-grain table that is 6' long. My uncle was a butcher and scored it somewhere once upon a time, it's prolly ~50 years old. It is against that wall in my storage currently, but someday I will have a kitchen big enough to accomodate it. Maybe build an island out of it? That will be the day......
Not sure how flat it is, it was used commercially and has since been (at least) sanded down so that it is fairly smooth. Gona have to take a yard stick to it I guess.
