Big Burl lands in my lap

 Big Burl- Probably Western Maple or Red Alder

 

I am not sure whether I should think of this a good fortune or a burden. My neighbour came around this evening bearing the gift pictured.. It measurers 26″ across and is 6 1/2″ thick. Species not known 🙁

The challenge is to come up with an appropriate way to use it. I am very hesitant to cut it until I decide that question.

Any Ideas ??

A stand for Piano Keyboard -Yamaha DGX 640

Yamaha DGX 640  – A “Real” Wood Stand

The Yamaha DGX 640 is fine electronic keyboard but the supplied stand is crap, being bade of chipboard and paper wood grain finish ;( . It also rocked when played enthusiastically. I decided to replace it with a one made from Black Walnut. 1″thick x 9 1/2″ wide boards. The feet were enlarged and made deliberately heavy to add weight where it was needed , at the bottom. I added a shelf on each side panel to accommodate my collection of  music fake books and EZ play books.
