This was not really a project, i guess, just an uncovering/restoration.
It is a hollow maple trunk from a tree job my man did. It was home to a hive of bees which he attempted to relocate and save from the dump. I got some new FUNCTIONAL fire tools for (us) for Christmas and they were too long to just lay around by the hearth area, so i remembered we had some sizable enough hollows on hand.
-All i had to do was remove the outer layer and sand…and WOW! ...i was not expecting this!

Very nice. Is there a bottom?

HAHAHAHA! I love it when you can just find a purpose for a good ole log! Just a little clean up, sanding, and perhaps a little finish and wah-la! Great use of a hollow log- I will have to remember this one. :)

I like the idea and now I have to remember to look for the same thing!

no bottom -why have one more place to clean!
-it did occur to me though…i could make some lovely boxes cutting the other half in half. -only, the inside, where the hive was, is even tougher than usual. It is very hard and would take a lot of chainsaw work to get it really cleaned out.
