A couple years ago, or maybe it was last year.
A storm blew through the neighborhood and a friend of mine lost a few trees.
I gained a couple side tables.
Before they were ordinary, run of the mill stumps.
Items used to transform these beauties.
I used Minwax Colonial Walnut Wood-Sheen Rubbing Stain and Minwax Helmsman Spar Urethane.
I wanted the wood grain to show, but I also wanted to protect the finish.
I predrilled, used wood screws to hold the casters on.
(I used these from Lowe’s. They look heavy duty, those stumps are heavy 🙂
We didn’t have a chainsaw, so we leveled with shims made from pressure treated deck wood.
(left over from where we replaced some of the decking)
The Tall One
This short one.
I turned it so that the top has the most surface, in case we want to play checkers on top.
I’ll be doing several posts on the reFreshing of the dock. Breaking down, the things that I did. I will try to do one a week, I don’t want you to get bored with the dock. It’s not a boring place, but it is a great place to relax.
Do you think you’ll be making any stump side tables?
