    Winner or simner

    So what's the consensus? Not mine, just altering I ran across on Facebook.

    The most expensive tool is the one you buy "cheaply" and often...

    I think you should wait a year and see what they are like.

    All these years and I've never had a use for a piece of wood cut like that.

    What are they used for if they survive? What are they good for if they crack?

    I did not mean "What are you thinking?" like "Hey Dummy, what are you thinking". More like "Cool wood, what are we going to make out of it?" Just want to be clear.

    I'm thinking a dresser with Intarsia ends, and maybe wrap the design all the way around. A tree of life sort of thing comes to mind. Could have some huge relief with wood that thick.

    That log is just a log, lets think out of the box. It was too short anyway.

    Agreed. I've never seen a cookie table that I found remotely attractive.

    I saw a reasonable use once. A relative obtained a bunch of cookies and placed them on tables at a wedding reception, vases and such on top. Looked rustic and elegant in the rough-hewn beam lodge housing the event. After the event they were discarded.

    People are offering those on FB all the time. If they can't sell you a live edge slab, maybe you'll buy a cookie.

    From the surface cracking and appearance of the log, it looks like it may have been down, or standing deadwood, so maybe there won't be as much cracking as expected. I can see someone like Doug Fisher turning one of those thicker cookies into some impressive wall art.
