Goodbye to Robin Hood Lanes


DEAN RUTZ / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Benjamin Simon Doherty moves a saw from one panel of wood to the next as he and a crew reclaim the hardwood lanes of the once-popular Robin Hood Lanes in Edmonds. When the longtime Edmonds community fixture closed its doors for ever good on April 25, all contents went up for sale. Doherty's friend Mike O'Neill bought all the wood with the idea of selling off some of it, and repurposing the rest for furniture he intends to sell online in the the coming months. After more than 50 years, Robin Hood Lanes closed its doors to make way for a new Walgreens.

Everything in the alley is either sold or up for sale, down to the bowling pins. O'Neill hopes to put the furniture he does build for sale on Craigslist in the coming months.
