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.

i’d put a fake bloody finger in there and wait for somebody to find it. but, i’m sure you’ll come up with something better than that for it.

Looks like a perfect “hickeydoodletogrind smoke” with. Either that or a muffler bearing container.

Make it a few inches longer, line the interior somehow and you’ll have a ready market for your pennywhistle cases over at http://forums.chiffandfipple.com/

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