Just had to post this in Projects since it’s such a friendly figure emerging from a roughsawn chunk of ‘firewood’. It is the start of a pool cue case, more here in my blog:

I call him ‘Willy’!

Merry Christmas all!

The eyes definitely have it. I’ve seen lots of faces in boards but this is one of the best.

Very cool looking…. but at the same time, a bit creepy.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

This board has resurfaced from the walnut pile after several other projects have been completed. As RobEk suggested, I would love to incorporate this in a build without losing much of the board’s character. Size is 3/4” x 6-1/2”x 38” and is planed smooth on both sides, small checks on one end.

Any project suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
