Looks like some of the holes are big enough for a Big Gulp – could be the worlds most unique cupholder.

I would use it as a top drawer for a jewelery box with a see-through top .you can put a suede covered base under it and keep the natural edge in a rectangular drawer.

Lots of potential small-turning pieces in there! Bottle stoppers, pens, knobs or drawer handles, whoa =D
