I guess most of us would chuck this piece of wood into the fireplace. Well, I don’t have a fireplace, so I chucked it onto my lathe instead. I believe it’s maple. Not sure what else to say about it except that there’s a hole in the bottom where the rot went all the way through, and I think it’s too shiny. I might spray it with some satin poly, haven’t decided yet. The last photo is the rough cutout before it went onto the lathe. It’s a weird piece but I like it. I’ll probably make more of these. Oh, and a hoard of ants came running out of it when I was digging out the rotted wood. That was funny.
