Remove all the bark. Let it dry out for a while indoors and then sand it. Might be cute sitting stool with a carved out high back rest.

A bird house ?

Cut slabs and sand for centre pieces on the table to hold hot food trays.?

Oddly, of course water is (almost) a universal solvent - drink a glass of water and you are drinking some of the glass as well. Many years ago, I did some work with Hydrofluoric Acid. So reactive that it was kept in gutta-percha bottles (I think that is made from latex).

Though the message of the song doesn’t reflect my own beliefs, “Hark, the Herald Angels Sing” has long been my favorite Christmas song.

I remember as a child hearing it sung so powerfully by a huge choir that it brought tears to my eyes.
