Looks real sturdy with those through the top legs. Nice job!

Nice stool. How did you treat the bark and what kind of finish did you use?

I had a co-worker lady wanting to make a project using log cross sections like this, and I told her that a cross section slice like this would crack when you dried it. How did you get this to dry without cracking? Super interested. Thanks.

I bought it already dried from keim lumber. I just used shellac to finish. I’m sure the bark will eventually break off or be broken off.

My neighbor yesterday just asked me if I wanted some pine logs they cut down last year. I told him I would have to think about it, I need to come up with some ideas on what to make with them. I think I just found my next projects.

might try it with Bradford pear (free), the pre-dried slice we purchased as a the cake platter (2 feet) across cracked despite treating with tung oil. Any ideas on how to reduce cracking?
