Try This: Log Table

Turn old trees into handsome furniture.

The bark on some species of trees, like the ponderosa pine shown here, comes off very easily—especially if the tree has been dead for awhile. Often you can just peel off the bark with your hands. Use a wire brush to clean off the newly exposed surface of the log sections. Chainsaw marks on the cut face of the log add to its character. You can sand the stumps using a rough-grit sandpaper if you choose.
