Box lids sound good for the flat pieces… Thank you.

I would turn the gnarly taller pieces into lamps if they weren’t too rotten on the inside. Hard to tell..

Thanks, PLK.
They have about 2-1/2”walls. They came from a 3’ diameter white oak struck by lightening.

I would like to see them sliced up. If they are very large, book matchedffor table tops.

I want to see the very last image in the initial post housing a light bulb. Minus bark and finished clear. SCREAMS lamp to me.

Thanks mMonte,
Are you talking about the flat pieces? They are pretty small for a table top although I could make little beside the couch tables out of them.

PLK, agree. Wonder if it would look good as a hanging lamp; sorta upside down.

Make a natural edged mirror from the hole in the 4th photo.

I’ve got a few laying around drying until inspiration strikes, the box idea sounds like a good one. I have one forming over a cut branch from several years ago that looks exactly like a toilet seat.

bigblockyeti, natural edge toilet seat? These are about two years old; all of them hollow. By the time I get the inside and outside cleaned out I should end up with 1-3/4 thickness. Probably need to wait another year or so but by then the bark will be like crazy glue and tasking to remove. I could leave the bark on and just sand the loose parts away.
