Got this at the reclaimed lumber place. I figure it’ll plane down to 3/4” x 6” which will sit nicely on my 6” jointer. Just looking for a few suggestions of what to turn this into.

I would grain match a box out of it with a highly figured walnut (or other dark wood top) to complement it.

That’s not quilted maple. But it is a nice piece of curly maple. I’d make a box with all the curl sloping in the same direction.
