Do you have a fro?
What about birdhouses? I bet you could do some things really clever down this road.
What about green wood projects? How about coat racks with twigs to hold the coats mounted into a piece of wood that is round in the front and flat in the back (from the sawmill) or from a piece that has been hand split.
Something else I've seen is some shelves where there is a log and a chainsaw carves out the shelves - so the shelves are one big piece of wood. You could probably do a chair this way too. And maybe an end table or coffee table.
