Gorgeous Burr Elm Plank

We were lucky enough to buy this gorgeous burr Elm plank a few years ago for only £20 !

Ever since I've had it it's been challenging me to make something worthy of it's rare and beautiful nature. A bit like an uncut diamond.

I think "that time has come" and a Windsor chair, footstool and a small side table would be good.
Maybe an Arbotech not adze for roughing out the seat though? - what with all that mad grain !

Any other ideas ?
