Chapter 88:11
Laws of Muktzeh on Shabbos

11.Wooden boards belonging to a private individual which are not set aside to be sold, may be handled on Shabbos (1). [In contrast,] boards belonging to a carpenter are forbidden to be handled unless it was his intention on Friday to use them on Shabbos (2).


(1) For use as a serving tray or some other purpose.

(2) Utensils that a person would not consider using for anything other than their primary function, out of a concern that they might get damaged, fall under the category called "muktzeh machamas chesron kiss" ("muktzeh due to [potential] financial loss"). Items in this category may not be handled even to use the body of the object for a permitted activity ("Tzorech Gufo"), or because one needs the space they are resting in ("Tzorech Mekomo") (See HY:88:6).
