I’m pretty sure this wood is from the trunk of a small pear tree I took down a few years ago. ([EDIT] It’s elm burl!) I cut off another hunk of it this spring and re-sawed it into 3 mini slabs with my band saw. Then I ran them through my thickness planer to get them to a uniform approximate 3/8 inch. The length is about 17 inches, but I’ll need to remove about 2 inches from each end because of the planer snipe.
I want to make something from this wood. The question is what to make from it. Right now I’m considering some kind of small lidded box. I’m not sure I have enough thickness for a sliding lid box.
[Edit] Here's what I made
