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?

Sometimes woodpiles are treasure chests!

Neat idea and work!

I have laso been know to “steal” firewood for other uses.
