Topic tags/keywords: cedar cookie table epoxy ideas

Evening everyone,

I have myself a dilema, the good sort I reckon. I need to make some sort of piece out of these slabs to put in a auction for our school later this month. I had originally thought about turquoise epoxy to full the small holes but turns out after drying the rotted wood just fell out leaving me with this big hole in each one. I am wondering if I should build these into something that uses the hole. Anyway tell me your thoughts.

Hmmm—custom toilet seats?

I’m thinking recessed plant stand/pot holder if you can rout back to solid wood.

They are pretty thick for any type of wall or table art. Do you think they could pass as side tables if you routed out a small rabbit for some glass to sit on to cover the hole? I think if you made some log legs that would match the look of the cookie top. Best of luck on whatever you decide.

The glass top tables sounds like a pretty neat use of them.

Build a shallow box under the holes and insert a bonsai or other small plant.
