How about this….cut a 36’’ square of same thickness outta something and attach 1 of those to each side. You would then have a table and you could also put hinges on 2 or all 4 sides to have a drop leaf table. I think you could have a lot of ideas to use these for.
You could also use them as “legs” on a table too. Or as “rockers” on a chair/rocking horse and …..........
Go for it….there are all kinds of possiblilities.

Small half-round occasional tables with a bottom shelf. 3 legs, one in front and 2 on the back.Legs would be maybe 2” wide with a rebate for the top and a dado for a bottom shelf. Or you could dado for the top as well to make it more sturdy and leave an inch protruding on top.

Vincent, Sorry to hear you lost your job. From the looks of your one car garage work shop I can tell your have many tools maybe enough to start a one man handyman business taking on small jobs to get you by until you can get permanent work. I did it once and I made some good money. Everyone need something fixed.
Now about that wood you need ideas for. You don’t need to make anything just yet. I would just cut it into useable sizes and store it until you need some wood for a project. It’s nice to have an assortment of wood in stock when you need some.
Hope things get better for you!

I agree with Woodshaver, store it until you need some wood for a project, if you think too much on what you should do with it, and produce something just to use it you will end up wanting that wood for a better idea later, been there done that. You could always send them to me, I will give them a great home.

Do you have a HUGE biscuit jointer? Looks like a big biscuit…I always save wood pieces and when I least expect it an idea for their use comes up.

I have had them for about 4 years now I look at them for a few hours trying to come up with something but nothing as yet.. it drives me crazy

I’ve done that before, So now I just cut it up into board for future use.
I once made a bunch of little toy trucks to give away to the kids in the neighborhood with a bunch of scraps I had kicking around the shop. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/15591
I hate putting good wood in the trash.

Invest in a scroll saw ($150) Invest in a scroll saw pattern book ($15) Practice cutting and making 3d pieces (priceless).

All ideas seems great. I think I forst of all like the shelves idea best. However being a scrollsawer the really hits home to me however there is an investment. Think of the thing you like best and try a project like that.
YES I also retired because of work issues. Work a little part time right now. You can do this and make very useful projects from these.
