I made a rocking chair for my niece with it (sorry no pictures) I used it for my workbench top too http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/Daren/blog/4512 . It is very hard to stain, for me anyway, so my advice would be use it in a project you want natural looking wood. It is not decay resistant so it is best used inside or treated well for outside use.
