Ampersand

I have recently acquired the following item!

&


Once upon a time printing was done with wooden and metal blocks. We still have one of the original single colour printing presses that use these old things (now converted into a die cutter).

Im not sure what im going to do with it. As you might be able to tell, I do have a slight thing for Ampersands (hence my avatar). The first obvious use, is to use it as my avatar. Which i am working on. The second use is to use it to print, but i do not wish to ruin it further.

I could use it as a coaster, but its worth too much for that.

Any ideas?

Do it.
I will, when I get stuff for it. Might make an i'ble but there seems to be plenty of them already. :P

I think you should make an avatar with it.

Yes, i intend to.
Yay! That would be one awesome avatar.
How funny, I just had the idea to make a carved wooden ampersand...
