I use flooring boards or other off cuts from my building sites for most of my projects.
Solid flooring boards in Europe are usually 19 mm ( 3/4“ ), and give you panels of 1/2“ when you plane them down.
I use them for picture frames and I made a beautiful side table (italian design, found the dimensions in the internet)

I can send you some sample pictures

I was given a bunch of Cherry flooring. I cut the edges off and remove grooves on bottom, usually at the bandsaw, then cut into 1” strips and laminate together to make cutting boards, table shuffleboards, etc.
