Try This: Log Table

Turn old trees into handsome furniture.

Large logs stay put because of their sheer mass; smaller ones can be doweled together to make them a more stable and permanent piece of furniture. Put the logs on a flat ­surface and measure and mark up from the floor about 6 inches for the top dowel and 3 inches for the bottom one. Use 1/2-inch doweling cut into 4-inch sections.
