Treasure(?) in the Firewood Pile

In my recent labors in the readying for winter via firewood splitting and stacking, I came across a couple of interesting pieces.  If the burls are sound, always an iffy proposition, I’m thinking the larger one can be turned into a pretty cool bowl for nuts or dried flowers, as for the smaller one Mrs. Barn has requested a wooden ladle.

With firewood duties completed for the moment I’m back in the shop for a good bit.  I finished processing that which has been hauled down the hill, then sometime later will go get another two dozen or so large trees that are on the ground.  Already we’re well into getting the firewood supply for the winter after the upcoming one.
