    Did you do anything to the wood to finish/protect or waterproof it to keep it from rotting?

    It's so gorgeous I want to copy this where I have a stump, but I'll want to keep reusing it year after year. Having plants in it will make it rot.

      No, I didn't. This log seemed to go into petrified mode. It has kept rly well & I have been able to use it for the past 4 yrs. It's under trees & pretty well protected. But if I wanted to save it, I'd have put some protectant on it. I'd love to see yours when you do this.. I'll bet it will look gorgeous!

    I have a hollowed out stump in my garden with a Garden Gnome in the base. Unfortunately, it's rotting away. Hubs put a band around it to hold it together, how long it will last, I don't know. I haven't spotted a replacement yet.
