Uses for old Undergravel filter plates?

I decided I wanted to at least be able to claim experience with them, and now I've taken it down and used the uplift tubes to make a couple box/sponge filters, now what can I do with the filter plates? I'm feeling crafty haha.

Not really sure other than maybe to use them in replace of crates under sand or gravel to stack rocks onto.

You could use one with screen over it as a platform for a paludarium.
