Re-cycled Book shelf lumber to table.
Found an old book shelf being thrown in the trash by the local school board. Re-cycled the wood into a side-table for our dining room to hold wine glasses and other serving items. Made supports on bottom sized to fit an existing wooden serving tray and the top has one curved corner so we wouldn't have a sharp corner to poke anyone as the rounded the corner from the other room. Turned the cake holder years ago out of walnut scraps from a class I was teaching.
Have yet to really identify the type of wood, but it worked easily. My first attempt at furniture making for the home.
