I have this small slab of cherry that I’m not sure what do to with. Thinking of maybe a clock, but thought I’d see if any of you folks had better ideas. Have at it! The rough side is the back – I’ve already run the belt sander over what would be the front.

What are the dimensions? Hard to suggest a project without knowing the size but here goes:

1. A wine bottle holder.

2. Wall shelf.

3. Background for a carved Nativity set.

4. Serving platter.

Good luck and have fun with it. Please post whatever you decide to make.

Could even be the top for a small end table.

I’d make a table. Also, you’ll get better feedback if you post it in the forums.

Camel? looks more like Bart Simpson !!

But seriously put it in a spot where you can see it and you may get an inspiration.

Dont be thinking of sending it to Bill let me know when you are home and I will drop by and pick it up!!

I’m in Ohio so I guess I have a head start. :)

Hadn’t noticed the camel face until Ashe mentioned it – that is a sign that it must be used in a hand carved nativity set. :)

Seriously, take your time and have fun with this – it is a beautiful piece of wood and deserves to be made into something special.

Thanks,, leafherder. This is kinda fun. I cut the piece out of a stump a couple of months ago, so I’m guessing I’ll have to let it sit in the shop and dry for a while. That’ll give me all sorts of time over the winter to think about it. Seriously considering a clock, but these other ideas are good, too. My son-in-law is a huge Simpsons fan. I should send him a picture – wonder if he’ll see Bart.

Have your say...
