Picked this piece of pine up off the beach , was a fair bit scabby & couple of rusty nails , been drying out for a couple of weeks,  still smells of the sea , I've just ran the sander over it and it's cleaned up nice , both sides totally different finish,  so thinking of ideas for it , make a cool looking piece ! Got a couple of ideas , but fresh eyes & ideas welcome.....

It would look good as a sign hanging in front of someone's new garden pub 👍.

Right so, either a sign , optics holder for a bar ? Funky clock or lamp with copper & eddison bulb , was either thinking of bit of green/ blue resin in the grain for a hint of water ! Let it dry out for another week or two then get going on it

Now that is different. Very nice.    Back to the Motto  instead of whoo hoo I could have alterted it to BOO BOO:yahoo:

Spent a fair bit of time in the southern States of the USA, mainly Texas and they use a lot of this type of wood to make all sorts, furniture lamp shades you name they do it and it almost always in the raw so to speak, hence my comment re sanding it.
