i was making a new access road through my sugar bush .Had to cut a large cedar stump at ground level. Thought it looked interesting so I brought it home and cleaned it up and this is what became of it. What do you think?

Let’s put it on MY porch for a few years and I’ll let you know. ;)
I love it! The slabs you used for the legs were a brilliant idea.

I think you definitely found the right use for something that most would have used a stump grinder to take care of. Love it.!

Very nice – I could use one of those on my front lawn. The cedar is gorgeous and I love the way you used slabs for the side/legs. Great job and a nice save using what would normally have been considered waste.
