looks like a potential nice end table to me…it’s tough stuff though (take your time) and you might get more sawdust than lumber out of it (keep the floor and tools clean and put it on the smoker as noted above. We fortunately have bags of hickory chips available in great supply). Some of these woods will allow you to keep a flaw or two in the finished product…what I call “character”.

p.s. I think ash is the baseball bat stuff….much more stable and predictable. But we’ll have to see what happens with the invasion of the emerald ash borer.
