I’m eye balling that figure and wondering what I could make with one or two of those planks. They look like 8/4.
Maybe a small Chair ? Something cool.

I can play this game. 24” wide figured maple slab I milled and made into a desk top.

It started like this (well it started 2 blocks away where the city cut it down on a vacant lot and delivered it to me)

And some of it ended up in the desk.
