This is an Oak stump I found in the Boy Scout Camp near me. It is at least a hundred years old. It is hollow but the wood is still in good shape. I pressure washed it, cleaned up some of the bad spots in it then leveled it with a chainsaw and a laser. The top is held in place by industrial magnets. The finish is the old fashioned stuff of hand-rubbed beeswax and turpentine then buffed to a soft sheen. The shop in the background is a mess but I wanted to post the pic. I built dollies out of old pallets and swivel wheels for moving things around in the shop. If you look closely in the 3rd picture you can see my youngest sons’ 72 Chevell SS he has stored in there temporarily. It’s gathering dust at the moment so when he moves it to his new house my shop will be half cleaned up!
