    OT...What to do with this lattice

    Peeled this off a tree and had it blasted with glass beads.
    The design caught my eye but...don't know what to do with it, any suggestions?

    Yeah, stain it and sell it. Old drift wood and old wood from fences and barns are crazy right now. You have a leg up in my eyes because it looks like some modern sculpture/art piece.

    I don't have the extra dough so I don't buy stuff like that but if I found it I would have done what you did and stained it and used it inside my house.

    Square off top and bottom. Brace it with a stainless steel ring. Add glass top to make a table (or two tables).

    Personally I would leave natural rather than stain.

    Could make a very interesting display table for a retail environment.

    Offer it to a garden centre for a zillion dollars.

    One idea that I'm considering is to make it a frame for a big metal print...?

    I like Adrian's idea about a table, although I wouldn't square it off, the shape is interesting, you could get a piece of glass cut for it at any hardware store for under a hundred bucks if you have the correct dimensions.

    Stain or natural, it would be a pretty sweet table.
