for poor guys like me, I just stand the stump up and eye ball a cut line and use a chainsaw to hack out slab sections of wood about 2” thick. Then, I paint the end grain with left over latex paint, and sticker it to dry. This type of wood slabbed into sections like this will take 2-3 years to dry, but would be good for a lot of projects. I have made bench seats, chair seats, walking canes, and all kinds of things from wood salvaged like this. In fact, I look every piece of firewood over well before deciding it is best used for heat.

An Alaskan chains saw mill would be great for work like this, but I don’t have one.
