These two projects I made for my wife, both are made from oak, I had to rob my firewood to make these, I cut the oak on my bandsaw, then jointed the edges, and air dried for a year in my shop….

And to think it would have just been more ashes had you notrescued it.
I like them, they look whimsical.

This is from FIRE WOOD. You saved it from becoming smoke and ash. Two great projects. I’ll have to check my wood pile to fine a log to save.

Ditto what Dominic said! You didn’t ROB the firewood, you SAVED it. Nice work!

These are pretty good looking pieces of firewood. It never ceases to amaze me not only what is hidden inside wood but also where it can be found. I may have to try this. My neighbor just cut up a maple with some spalting in it. After looking at these two pieces I can definitely see some possibilities.
Thanks for the inspiration.

I also take a trip to the wood pile and look for nice round hunk of firewood for turning, I put it right on the lathe with the bark on, works great….

I really like those barrel hinges look moldings. Overall build and finish is just as awesome as the design.
