I've got one here somewhere that a friend made from a split rail chestnut fence. It is drilled for a test tube to slip down into it flush to the top, a flower vase.

Great idea! 
Lucas 6-13+slabber, a blue cant, orange chainsaws, JD SSL, Case Backhoe, farm tractors, trailers, and 150ish acres of trees.  Fledgling woodshop with CNC router, laser engraver, Woodmaster 712, and a Berlin 108 moulder (project).  Oh, and a lovely (patient) wife and four offbearers.
