I tried my hand at building a side table out of tree branches, a stump and some smaller disks cut out of tree trunks. This was a complete learning experience for me as a novice, but turned out way better then I ever anticipated and I learned so much.

How well does it balance or stand up to weight?

It’s is level, balanced out and can hold a decent amount. It is slightly top heavy, but not enough to throw it off.

Extremely unique and great looking. I assume you are going to put a glass top on it.

I couldn’t tell which part looks better – the top or stand below. Excellent natural wood shaped project.Very unique.

@paul for now I’m leaving it with out glass, but it is a possibility down the line if I feel it’s needed.

Very neat table. Nice work. How is the top attached to the base? It looks like the small disks are attached to some sort of substrate that is attached to the base but I can’t tell what it is. Thanks for sharing.

@mattkrusen The disks are glued then nailed to a round piece of press board, I then used a dremmel tool to shape the edge of the press board to fallow the dips and curves of the disks. That was then screwed to the larger center spindle, and the rest were nailed into place with a nail gun.
