There is a window and door company near me and i frequently acquire wood from the owner. recently they were throwing out about 100 of these mess-up window framing strips. they are mahogany and are about 2 feet long and maybe .25 inches thick. However, its not that simple, because there is a weird cove on one side that i would be willing to cut off for the right project. there is a Christmas sale at my school in about a month and i was thinking that if i were to discover something simple i could make of these that kids could buy for around 5 dollars that would be great.

Possible ideas:
phone holder(like a collapsible one with notches)
lamp base(glue them back to back and stack them up like a log cabin except leave the gaps)
