Q: Hi there! I have some wood planks that were used as table runners at my wedding. I'd like to repurpose them to make a gift for my wife. However, my woodworking skills are almost nonexistent! The planks are 47"x10" and are 1" thick. I have 10 of them. I've thought about a basic console table with hairpin legs, or a stool or bench. Any other ideas that would be a simple DIY? Thanks! -Sent by Matt

Editor: While a photo of a puppy is the surest way to get your Good Question published, a romantic query is the next best thing. Maybe for the week of Valentine's Day this column will be retitled Romantic Questions... Anyway, please share your ideas with Matt (including links to tutorials, if possible) and share your romantic quandaries with me!
