I’m not going to say that they will split, but… they will split (if they’re still wet right now). From the looks of it, it’s already starting.

I have had a few different types of slices like that at different thicknesses and they all ended up splitting eventually. You might want to read what the turners do to insure that the pieces don’t split. I don’t really need cuts like that so I just chalked them up to experimental pieces and moved on.

As for other ideas, they can be used for inlays, small boxes, serving trays, umm…. can’t think of anything else right now.

Good luck on drying those.
