What should I do with this chunk of ash?

a friend gave me a piece of ash branch, which I've mounted up & partially turned round.
It's 17" x approx 4"
I'm pretty new to turning, and cannot think of what I can make it into..

any ideas besides a billy club?

This listing may give you a start (with links to videos).  Probably 40+ categories that may fit in that size blank (or smaller).

Wood workers Mallet. I used to make these for the shop and leave them laying around for everyone.

Turned boxes are relativity simple but challenging yet the same. You will want to find instructions and will learn a number of turning tasks if you do.

These were made out of 2x2 cheery.

If nothing else, turn it all into shavings. Practice beads, coves, and straight cuts. Ash is rather coarse to make a good rolling pin. You could make spinning tops too...

FYI: you now are obligated to post whatever you turn or have tried to turn.

Hay we all gotta start somewhere. No fear

I had this friend that produced one off turned art pieces in Hawaii. If you asked him he would explain to you that he actually had a saw dust and scrap wood factory.
