Hello all I have recently joined the site and the world of woodworking for that matter. I have a few Madrone limbs curing that fell over the winter and I was wondering what project ideas ya’ll might have. Size ranges from about 4”-6” in diameter to small limbs, anywhere from 5’-15’. I like the idea of keeping a natural/raw look with a bit of inlay possibly. What do ya think?

Limb wood can be a little more troublesome, sometimes full of stress fractures, and if you don’t resaw and dry properly you’ll have nothing but firewood within a couple weeks.

If you can resaw, boxes would be a good bet. If you can’t resaw then small turned items.
