Awesome Table From a Stump
Last fall, lightning struck a tree during a rain storm and it toppled over in our yard. Huge pine. We pulled out a few nice chunks for stools or tables down at the fire pit and cut up the rest for firewood.
One piece, near where the lightning struck it, was all splintery. I pulled that aside thinking it had character.
First, we tried to cut the bottom as level and even as possible. Next, I sanded it and hosed it off with water to remove as much dust and dirt as possible.
I sliced off the points. They will be used before I'm done.
I sanded it all around, then stained it with a Minwax in dark pecan. Finished with a satin polyurethane spray.
