I've had this chunk of Eucalyptus Burl for about 3 years. It's been buried on a shelf for most of that time and I finally dug it out tonight. I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with it yet, it's approx 17 diameter and as much as 9" thick at the thickest point.
The underside is cut as a big wedge so some of that 9" thickness will go away.

My gut tells me to do a large natural edge nested set similar to the set below (and from the same tree) but I'm looking for other opinions.
