I’ve had this old twisted branch laying around the shop for a couple years. I’m not sure what kind of wood it is and I can’t remember where I found it but I just knew when I saw it that it would be something one day. This morning, it screamed....I am a small table base or foot stool! I combined it with a rough-finished/sanded small slab of spalted sugar maple. I steel-brushed the branch and then roughly,hand-sanded it. For me, it was quite a task getting the top of the braches bevel-cut and level. I soaked the whole thing in natural Danish oil and then put several light coats of Deft poly on the top. The top turned out very smooth overall with some rough chain-saw cuts left in on purpose….but …well, it turned out a lot better than I thought. The piece measures 12” tall and the top is 18”L x 13”W. The footprint of the base is 24”L x 12”W. Thanks for the looks and comments.
