How would you upcycle a windowsill?

With care, I hear you say!

When I wanted to make a dish, my friend Sam, who very kindly lets me use his wood turning lathe, offered me an oak windowsill – no longer attached to his home!  

Minimal in design, the end result is beautiful and very tactile.  Perfect as a resting place for jewellery too.  I hope the recipient likes it.
