Wow! your projects just get bigger and bigger; this one will hold a year’s worth of coffee for a division!
I’d like to know more about the method of joinery on that big slab, and whether you have any problem with wood movement.

amazing! I showed my wife the project and now she wants one….I don’t have the skill or the tools, but I am curious like the others how you cut the stumps and finished them.

Absolutely amazing. How did you cut the stumps so that the table was level?

I cannot amagine how you dug it up and hauled it in the garage. The finish is great. What did you use?
