    Thought I'd post this.
    We did some beach combing a few weeks back, mostly collecting garbage and plastic washed in from Lake Ontario (high water and flooding all spring and summer). Came across a nice bit of driftwood. My mom has a hobby of carving and finishing driftwood for home decor.
    Since the cap to our tiller handle has been long gone (evidenced by the remains of a wasp nest down the pipe), we thought this would be a nice upgrade. /)
