Did you ever have an idea for something, only to make one and not know what to use it for?
Well, it’s got a wooden cap/plug, it is aluminum and about 1” in diameter and 6” long with an aluminum base.
Maybe a humidor? An alumidor! hehe!
Storage for marbles?
I was also thinking that a large diameter wooden base to stand it upright.
Turning aluminum on a wood lathe is an interesting challenge.
Any idea are welcome.

First thing I thought of, was a match stick holder for those long fireplace matches.
