Every now and then, I get a board or two. No real project for just a single board. I usuallyjust make a shelf , fancy or not, depending on both the wood, and what "exras" I have on had, maybe a railing sitting on some dowels, or some Shaker pegs under the shelf. Just a way of using those extra boards around the shop.
This used to be over a window, there are holes in each ebd for curtain rods, there are a pair of other shelves in the picture as well. The big shelf over the doorway is pine, the smaller two are Oak from a pallet.
Not sure what wood this was made from. Like the "Cat"?
All of these shelves hang from screws. I used a "keyhole" bit in the router to make the mounting holes on the back of the "legs" of each shelf. Some other shelves had the full "Monty", that is; a plate groove, a few shaker pegs, a heart cut-out, and a fancy railing. Many of the shelves I've made wind up as presents to friends. Try some, you might like it.
