Slabs - w/ pic (need help)

Hey all,

I recently traded an old shotgun reloader I had laying around for these slabs. I'm really not sure what to do with them, but I just couldn't pass them up.

What do you guys think?? Any tips?? This is way beyond my skill set, and my biggest concern is messing up a slab that is worth hundreds.

The tall stuff is myrtle wood that's been in a shed for a long time i guess. The small piece is a thick chunk of maple burl.

Biggest point is if you had a use for either the loader or the wood.
I won't put a value on it, but I do love live edge cuts.

Center looks like walnut.

I think you might be right. I think I got walnut, maple, and myrtle.

That "walnut" slab I'm thinking may end up being a nice side board.

More to come. I guess the guy has a few more slabs to bring over.

I've seen beautiful coffee tables made from slabs. Do you need a long shelf some place in your home? I think we all agree to not cut it up and use your pieces whole...

Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.
