This week we bring you a fun open-ended question straight from our reader-driven discussion boards! This one's a mental exercise started by cwatkinson, who was inspired by a particular piece of wood on a trip to Woodcraft:
"So as i am much more of a product architect / process consultant now in my role i have been scratching my design and build itch at home. I am in the process of building some bedside end tables and then some other bedroom pieces. While looking at some tools, i fell in love with this piece of "material" and have already begun the mental design process for what i could do with it.

With that said I thought a good thread to start could potentially be 'what would you do?' The challenge - to post a piece of raw material and then for the forum to explore what they would design with the said piece of raw material."
We want to see what materials inspire you and how you would use them—attach a picture of an inspirational raw material and share your ideas in the comment feed below!
