I just downed the large old cherry tree that has been competing with
my house for space for the last decade or more. A friend took most of
it for firewood and found it was really twisty - could hardly split 16
inch lengths with hydraulic splitter. All that's left is the 2 bottom
chunks of the trunk - over 2 feet in diameter at the ground -2 chunks
about 3 feet long that are really 2 intertwined trunks - should have
some REALLY interesting grain patterns.
Any good ideas how to make use of it??

That sounds like the kind of wood turners can make use of. It might be
useful as an accent piece, for example a contrasting pull on desk
A planter would be tolerant of twisty moving wood. Hollow out, fill with
dirt and drop in 5 magic bean seeds. (Or a couple dozen ordinary ones

As Puck says, make a planter, but rather than filled with dirt, put a potted plant (with bottom dish) in it. https://www.flickr.com/photos/43836144@N04/7742403882/in/photostream
If you can conveniently get the rootball, you'd probably have some nice burled/figured wood. A few roots should make for some nice mallets, also.
