That’s very good, Charles. Great idea. I’ve always found slab tables difficult to conceive unless they are on a metal pedestal/supports. This is a really cool solution…masterfully done.

I suppose making a stump from dimensional lumber is about as difficult as making dimensional lumber out of a stump.
That wood came full circle it seems.
Nice job!

Great looking stump(s) Charles. A nice way to make them. I’ve got a slab top on a table beside me now but I’ve never been too fond of it’s base so this might be a great addition.

Absolutely beautiful work.

Me and those chainsaw heads don’t get along very well though.

That is the coolest table base I have ever seen! By FAR! It looks like a LOT of work but well worth the effort.

Monte, I understand about the chain saw heads, the Holy Gallad which is the carbide grinder head is much easier to use and control , and they cut pretty fast as well,

There’s something about this project that just draws me to it… I can’t put my nubs on it, but there’s definitely something…

Very nice stump work, and I enjoy the way you do your videos! I showed this to my father because he cut trees for 35+ years…and still does from time-to-time. This piece started up a discussion about the LA swamp lands and the shows that we watch. Most guys out there cut all the ‘boring’ stuff out of their videos, but the way you guys sit there and discuss how to take it from glued up scraps to a masterpiece is part of the whole collection. The ‘cutting up’ normally gets cut out! Stumpy Nubs…lol…I still haven’t finished his particle board build contest video series. Anyways, another amazing piece to just let go and have fun with and I can tell you were enjoying yourself. The finish on the slab blows me away…maybe I can get to that point before I turn 100. Great job, and camera girl got a truly unique piece of art.
