I was giving branch from a club member that he won in the club raffle, not sure what it is but the first thing that came to mind was mushrooms with a couple of coats of teak oil.

The wood is definately Yew, they look nice well turned mushrooms, if they were mine i might try mounting them on some bark or even a scrap of burr to display them.

Thank's for your comments, I remember now the fella saying it was yew well spotted ralph I was thinking the same as you and mounting the on some bark.
T.allan jones the wood was well dried Im led to belive it is about 4yrs old I was suprised how light it was, the reason I coated them in teak oil was the bark was very dry so Im hoping the oil will seal the bark.

Paul these are great the thing about them is that you have not tried to make them all identical. I'll go with mounting them all on one piece of wood will make a feature of them
