Don’t see boards this big anymore. Had 3 walnut and 4 cherry and all have beautiful grain and rays. Last one and not sure how to use it. Unfortunately they plain under 3/4 so a table top is out any suggestions. Thanks for looking.

How about you just sand, finish and hang it on the wall above the sofa?

How about we split it right down the middle? Oh wait, never mind.

That board would make some really nice boxes.

You could do a skirt/apron on a table to give the illusion of more mass. Or like Greg said: a LOT of nice boxes!

Thanks for all the ideas and I’ve got some good thoughts. Wish I could put it over the couch( like Hybrid said) and just look at it after a long day in the shop. But I’d eventually pull it down and make something out of it. Thanks again and I’ll use it wisely
