Need ideas on a robot arm.

I am looking to make a robot arm that is controlled via radio. 

The arm needs to be able to pick up wooden pieces that can range from 0.5lbs to 10lbs and carry them a fair distance. I already have a moving robot, but I am just stuck on what to do to pick up the pieces.

I have servos, arduinos, circuits, aluminium sheets - bars - rods - etc.

It lets you control smart and regular servos, and has tons of Grove and RobotGeek connectors, all in one shield.
