My step daughter gave me this tree cookie and asked if I could do “something” with it. The top had a chainsaw mark that raised a roughly 8” long and 1/2 ” high curving ridge across one side that took a grinder and 4 sander belts to smooth down. I never actually got the top smooth but it was relatively flat (I figure that adds to the rustic charm). I was worried that to get it flat I would have had to grind down the thin side to almost nothing. I had to gouge/chisel/grind the bottom of the cookie to create somewhat flat areas for the base to fit into. The base is just ply and a 2×2 collar painted and secured to a 2×6 I screwed into the bottom of the cookie. Top is slathered in four coats of poly.

Blue- I had three of those crosscut (cookie) sections left over after my daughters wedding and know what a challenge they are to work with. The qualities that make end grain good cutting boards also makes it a real pain to smooth. With all that being said, really cool use of yours. That live edge table is pretty sweet.
