Welcome to the club.

I only work with lumber so I don't have any ideas for that piece of wood. It looks like it has too many cracks in it to do very much with it.

Welcome here to this very friendly woodworking forum! As for a project for your unique piece of wood, that IMO depends on your skill, available tools, an idea, and the condition of the wood, but certain that you are hoping to do more than just make a large lamp base or book ends. Perhaps looking through some craft or decorating magazines will give you an idea. Be safe.

Looks like theres enough there to get a live edge slab out of for maybe a shelf or small coffee/end table.

I wouldnt try and work it like it is. Whatever you do I would suggest milling it down.
