    If it's a glass top: on top of another table/desk as a surface protector, to make a cold frame/as part of a greenhouse (although be careful about cutting out too much light if it’s smoked or frosted) or maybe mounted on the wall as a dry erase board
    If it's stone, maybe a neat wall art piece in the yard or reused as a lower coffee table or other furniture
    Wood tops can be cut up into almost anything! Bench, bookshelf, furniture, art, easel, the sky is the limit!

    Headboard, if they are big enough. Shelves are always good.

    With antique table tops you can cut them the size for entryway table and either users legs from table or get spindle legs from hardware store and stain or paint to match. Screw 2X4 just under where table will fit flush and level. Attach to wall then to table underneath.

    I saw on Hometalk where someone made a large clock out of a round table top, painted the clock, sanded around the edges and some in the middle. Stenciled the numbers on, got the qhand mechanism and attached it. Turned out really pretty.
