Got this from a friends wood pile today. He laughed when I told him I was gonna make a vase out of it. I think it turned out pretty good.

It’s oak and finished with Danish oil. Thanks for the looks and comments.

Looks like something was using it as a home. Nice finish and good save.

Love it! Does it have a bottom or is it hollow through?
