Small project (with extra scrap wood)

Okie dokey, I love to be creative, but I'm a bit lost on this one. I'm rebuilding my grandma's floor, and have some extra scrap wood, but not really enough to do any big projects with, and I was wondering if anyone had some ideas. I have two 4x4 8 ft long, four 2x4 8 ft long, and about ten 2x6 pieces two feet long. I thought about making a couple striking pads, or a seiza board, maybe a chair, but I'm looking for something that strikes my interest more, so any ideas would be great. Arigato gozaimasu

Can you make something as a gift for the shomen of your dojo?

What's the wood? Nice quality? Maybe a bokken/jo stand? I've got several nice pieces of maple I'm planning to do that with. My "scrap" pile is dangerously expansive so I'd love to hear some good ideas too!

Re: Small project (with extra scrap wood)

Since we share the area with the TKD people, sensei said better not to add to the simplicity of what we have. As far as the wood quality, it's all just regular pine. And about 8 of the 2x6 are treated. I might end up with a few nice sized pieces of oak. How much maple do you have?
