Help!! Bazillion 1ft cedar boards came to me

Hi,
Please help me find a useful purpose for these! A neighbor who builds fences brought these home and made a small wishing well from just a few of them, then put about a hundred or more on the curb - leftover from fencing. Said customer changed mind about height of fence. Of course, I hauled them to my back yard. Am looking for birdhouse plans, but what else can I do with them?
Thanks,
Linda

You can use them for flower bed edging!

How about overlapping them like cedar shingles to artistically cover some area??

Not sure whether you mean these are one foot lengths of cedar, or one foot wide boards. However, I've seen garden paths made from wood. For the life of me I can't find the link, but I recall seeing something like this in a Gardeners' Supply catalog awhile back. They can be aligned in a decorative pattern, somewhat like what is done with brick.

If you like grilled salmon, then soak a cedar plank for several hours in water. Place a layer of rock salt on the plank and lay your salmon skin side down on top of the salt. Salt and pepper to taste. Place on a medium to medium hot grill, gas or charcoal, for about 18 - 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily. Serve! Use a new cedar plank for each cook-out. Note that the size of the plank simply must accomodate how much salmon you wish to grill.

Hey,
What about making a few flower boxes,that would sit on the porch. Also maybe some for the windows. Apply hooks and hang your keys. Maybe even make picture frames.

I make garden signs from pieces of wood that size, mounted to stakes. Then I use black paint and caligraphy letters to say things like "herbs" or "Robin sanctuary" or "garden tour>" etc. When done, I spray it with clear coat. Now I am thinking a wood burning tool would last longer. Now the local garden club wants me to make some for them, so I'd better get crackin.
