It started with the big trees that fell
last winter (time flies) two or three or four years ago.
Mr. Cranky cut slabs from the larger rounds.
He removed the bark, scrubbed the logs with a wire brush, and ran a belt sander over the tops and the edges to create a beveled lip.
Two of the new rounds on last year's table (moved outside for the summer).
The turpentine is for wiping up the pitch that will continue to ooze for awhile. I lost one pair of socks and one pair of jeans to the pitch before I caught on.
I like the one in the center with the footrest.
