One of the guys in my turning club was cutting up a boxelder log and trimmed off a stub from a branch.

He handed it to me, said “Here … make something out of this!” and laughed.

Challenge accepted! It is about 7” long and 1-1/4” high.

Can’t wait to see the outcome. I’m sure it will be a beauty. :)

OK, what says that you MUST “Turn” it…??

You could use some Carving… and scoop it out to the edge down to form the Bowl part of a COOL tray…
... snack tray…

Looks COOL!

Well, if you don’t have to turn it, it would make an interesting clock IMHO
