Hey Guys,

I came across this forum as I was doing some research on some wood I found at one of my projects. Just for some clarification, I work for a large demolition company here in the US (based out of Charlotte, NC). We are tearing down an automated warehouse, and a large conveyor system.

We have pulled out a large amount of these wood "boards" which I cannot seem to get a name for, or understanding of what to do with (other than dispose of).

These boards are 1.25" Thick, 52" Long & 44" Wide. They have rounded corners, and each board has a metal plate stamped in with a number and a bar code. We have over 20,000 individual units right now, and I would like some advice on what they are, and what are my options in terms of selling them, etc.

This is my first post, and I apologize if this is in the wrong section / am not following proper protocol.

Well you can't identify the type of wood based on the size of the board. Post some pictures at least

Any ideas as to what its worth, or who buys product like this? I have 20,000+ boards.

I was given a pile of boards just about what you have there. The boards that were given to me were something that were pallets for some kind for shipping?? First thing I found out about them is that what ever they were put together with was interior glue. Anything I used them for that was outside they just came apart. At the time I was building a building so I used them for the floor. The only problem I found was after the building was built that the thickness of each board was a little different from each other so they didn't make for a very good floor. The pictures and sizes just look a lot like what I had but who can tell from a picture so don't go by what I am saying. They are nice heavy duty boards and I am sure someone would have a use for them. I still have a few left over that I am trying to think of a use for.
