What Would You Build?

My father-in-law has two boxes of wood in his garage that someone gave him and he's not going to use.  There are two different sizes, probably 100 pieces.  I took home one of each, and I've been contemplating, brainstorming, and just plain thinking on it.

The small block is roughly 5 x 3 x 1.5.  The larger flat piece is roughly 11 x 5.5 x .5.

I have more ideas for the bigger, flat pieces.  A bird house? 
My Repurposed Life
A sushi server?
Crate & Barrel
Maybe something like these herb boxes found in The Lettered Cottage kitchen.

 All it would take would be a little stain, a little distressing, and a stencil made from something from The Graphics Fairy.  I like this one:

Two thoughts-

- a bin for firewood
- a simple pedestal (similar to sushi tray) on which to put an interesting object, inviting puzzle, or a floral design
