I made this potato bin as a Christmas gift for 2015. Made mostly from reclaimed red oak from my parents house (1930). When I was hand planing the top down I noticed something a bit shiny. After evaluating I determined that it was a bullet. I guess the former owners shot the wall or perhaps it was impacted when this tree was still standing pre-1930s. 3 coats of tung oil
