It has been mentioned that this may be a Cladopora? All I have found along Lake Michigan has been wave tumbled smooth.  This is actually slightly raised above the stone and from an inland site.

Not a cephalopod but likely a Bryozoan or Coral (which Cladopora is)

With that structure I would say it's not a Cladopora as the tubes are too close together. Not well versed enough in my bryozoan cross sections to suggest anything else though.

Nice pics, and interesting on-going project!

I see lots of bryozoans and crinoid bits and pieces. 
Some wonderful "hash plates".

Today's lowly find. High up. 1/4 inch screen.  Would like to know what the round ring is with small Crinoids inside? Also Bryozoans. shown wet. A lot of clay and much work for one person. But social distancing. That would be from around 10 feet deep according to the land owner. .
