It’s a weekend without the grandkids.
It’s hobby time.
I’ve had a driftwood treestump on my back porch for quite a while.
I didn’t know what to do with it….but I knew I NEEDED IT!
Not long ago, my boss was cleaning out one of his many work areas and came across a
Slab ‘o wood.
He just gave it to me. Said he’d never use it and hoped I would be able to.
The pistons in my brain fired up and I went to work on the stump and the slab.
I figured the only way to go was to build a table.
Who doesn’t like tables?
They are so useful for….stuff and things.
I leveled out the top of the stump.
Sanded down the slab.
And connected the two with heavy duty gate hinges. The kind used on ranches to keep cattle in n stuff.
Then, finished it all off with polyurethane, and tried to get a close as I could to
Here’s the results from 3 angles to show the awesomeness of the stump and the patterns on the slab.
I call this my-
Dragon Coil Table.
It’s not just a table.
It’s my attempt at furniture art, that’s not just functional but also a cool conversation piece.
Discaimer- this wasn’t all done this morning. It’s been a work in progress that got finished this morning. This is a blog post….not a you tube start to finish project in 30 minutes type situation. 😬

I seriously admire people who are both passionate about and talented when it comes to crafting stuff out of wood. Your work is brilliant. Love the table. ☺️
Thank you. I wanted to try to sell it…my wife put the kabosh on that and said , “Nope…that’s mine”
