I made these Mango tables in Jan 2011 from a stump I rescued from the side of the road much the same as Bob Wemm did.
The process has quite a few interesting pictures so I did a blog on “The Mango Stump rescue”

Thanks Rob, that Mango stump is awesome. I got a few bits from “Mapleman” in Qld. have made a bowl from it and a couple of pens, the rest is sitting waiting.
-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Thats a nice little piece of wood you picked up. What kind of wood did you use for the legs?

Thanks Guys its a post that was generated by another LJs “Gloat”
The legs well not one of my proudest or creative pieces of work, I must say but back then I must have thought it OK.
They are large pieces of I think Pine dowel which were on special at Bunnings.
(Bunnings is a store similar to what you would know as Lowes)
I think I bought enough to make the three sets for the equivalent of one set.At the time they were cheap, and they look cheap as well . Today I have the skills and tools to make my own if I were to do it again hence the embarrassment regarding “best forgotten” in my construction blog.
