I've been dormant. Miss you guys. Looking for ideas on how to best use this 85" x 18" x 7/8" piece of church pew. It's oak and over 80 years old. From the glued up ends and center supports I cut 3D scrollsaw ornaments that sold well at the church silent auction. Originally I was going to cut this up and make boxes but it is 7/8" thick and not my idea of box material. Perhaps a two seat bench?

If it's flat a work bench top, blanket chest, tool box comes to mind. If it's shaped I am not sure where to go.

How about something that will be used in your church such as a bulletin holder or a small lectern?

Another option is a music stand for the piano

Just brainstorming...
