My bedside stump is as it was sawn from the tree - it needs to be leveled and perhaps finished a bit - I don't sit any drinks on it!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Thanks for all of the comments....I never know what type of reaction I'll get for my posts Tongue
I haven't polyurethaned it yet-it's so dry here I'm not sure if I really need to. And I have a couple more logs, so I'm looking for a table top maybe to use with it.

on this note, there is a man here in town who makes neat-o sculptures out of tree stumps that had to be cut down for whatever reason, I noticed that all his creations are poly-ed and they last longer than the ones people do and dont apply poly...they seem to crack and splinter quicker and they dry out without poly   Wink

Something I learned recently about working with wood outdoors- put it upside down if it's touching the earth. Wood never looses its natural wicking ability, it the 'root' end is dry the wood will stay dry longer, plunk it in the hole upside down & seal the end. I learned this from two old cowboys using cedar posts for a fence.

More great advice. I wish I could say I love polyurethaning...but I don't. I tend to like the flaking off look.

There's not nearly enough of them around anymore. Oh, sure plenty of young guys in fancy trucks & boots, but they aren't real cowboys.
