End Table Carving from Stump

I have zero experience with woodworking. Though I found a stump that looked reminiscent of a dog paw and figured if I beat on the stump enough I could turn it into something resembling a stool. Well, it ended up being way too heavy for a stool, so I put a piece of glass on top and repurposed it as an end table of sorts.

I don’t know what it is, probably just firewood, but it was my first attempt at carving a stump and it was darned fun!

Thanks! I urethaned it after making the rookie mistake of staining it, and then realizing I hated the stain and had to sand/plane the entire surface again. Urethane + red cedar are an awesome combination.

If I hadn’t seen it, I wouldn’t have believed a dog could wield a chainsaw.

Great work.

Great job! (I have one that is similar made from Black Walnut – too tall for footstool, too short for a table – I use it as a plant stand, never thought of adding a glass top.)
Thanks for sharing
