Most of people around here own some furniture and tables made from wood. Tree decor is everywhere these days so I found a nice weekend project to build a small coffee table from a log slice. Wouldn’t be amazing to see the bark and count the rings to find the age of the tree?
The first and most important part of the project is acquiring the log. The next step is to cut a slice ( in the below project it was used a five inch slice ) of the wood for the table top. This is best accomplished with a chain saw.
To make it smooth you need to remove marks with a belt sander. For protection from liquids apply three coats of polyacrylic on the top and some clear lacquer spray to the bark on the sides for protection.
The log can be attached to some nice looking legs from a chair. In this project were used the legs of a cheap IKEA Marius stool . Just $5.99!
Other interesting project with tree slices is a log slice floor:
