Well my customer wanted two huge stumps for the legs of this table, each stump weighed about 225 lbs each.
This would increase the shipping price big time! So I was able to convince the customer just one stump cut in half would work just fine & still give the table the look she wants. I did stain the out side of it with Walnut stain & left the center the natural red cedar, Then applied five coats of clear poly. Even cut in half these legs are still monsters lol. Just for those who are curious I us a chain saw to cut them in half.

Nice piece of wood. Just a word of advice, though. The Projects area is for finished projects. You’d be better off putting this in a blog series documenting the progress, then posting here in Projects when the whole thing is complete.

That’s a great looking hunk of wood. Too bad the top won’t be seen if I am correct that your phase I post is the top. This would look great with a glass top…........................

Hey Kody it’s eastern red cedar, not Yew wood.

Scoffs Amazed you convinced the client to only use half of the log… Table isn’t likely to hold up much more than a couple thousand years or so now… Way to go :P… Going to make one great table :) Look forward to seeing the finished project…
