Whoops, Need Some Ideas For This


So I was buying some ash for a project and came upon this little gem and decided I needed it. Now what the hell should I build with it? I want to do something other than a coffee table, something really unique.

Use it on the wall or above a fireplace. You could do some deco concrete around it flush. Kinda like this

So don't make a table out of it. Make a bar out of it. Great conversation pc. Put a high gloss finish on it. Make a rabbet edge for the bartender area and the raised area as the customer area. Build a rustic cabinet below it to store the liquor.

You just gave me a really good idea. One of the problems with a table is it's not high enough to really take in all the figure and how intense it actually is. The bar is a great idea with the cut side poked into a wall. The other thing I thought about was a top for a glass sink.
