I haven’t made a final selection for my main project yet, but a couple of ideas include wood/resin coffee table with lights or some sort of machined metal dynamic assembly.
The idea that I am the most attracted to right now is the wood/resin coffee table. I have seen these pop up many places over the years and they have always peaked my interest. In order to figure out what I want to do for this project, I have been constantly thinking about it as I go throughout the week. I mainly want it to serve a function so I have been thinking about if I need any products that I could just design and build myself. While I was in my room I thought of the wood/resin table becuase I was thinking about my desk and how I liked the wood finish and how large it is. Then I thought about all of the wood/resin tables I had seen over the past 7 years and thought if I could somehow make it dynamic by putting lights in it or possibly making adjustable legs. I dont know how I would do either of these yet, but that is how I arrived at the wood resin table.
Here are a couple pictures of the kinda style that I would be going for. I want it to be a reasonable size (about 4ftx4ft) and with a big resin pool in the middle that looks like water. The one down side to this is that the resin is super expensive, so it might not be doable for now.

I havent decided what I would do if I machined something. If I did I would want it to be useful and very functional. I also like the aesthetic of shiny metal, so I would want it to look very clean and shiny. I am going to continue to think about what I need as I go throughout my day for the next week or so and see if I can choose anything.
