A few weeks ago while regrading one of our logging trails, I bumped into this old locust stump. It was so unique - with 3 sandstones embedded - that I couldn't pass it up.
With a little applied effort and some freshly seasoned black cherry, it transformed into the corner table that you see here:
And with that, my newfound creativity outlet was formed. The latest piece is a prayer journal stand that I made from another locust stump along the same forest trail. This one features a small black cherry slab for a journal to sit on; and a handmade metal & stained glass hanging lantern (similar to the hanging tree lantern in many of my oil paintings).

Here's a quick little video showing the transformation in action:
