Phooey! So, just to rub it in a little, here are some of the things you could do with a tree stump. I wanted to cut discs from the hollow part and make manly rustic Holiday wreaths, but, nooooooo WE had to be somewhere!
I won't suggest anyone with a chainsaw and an imagination can turn a tree stump into art, but some people can and do!
There are, however, some simple and clever things you can do with a tree stump.
Use the stumps to make stools for the picnic table.
Make this simple child's riding toy by cutting a half moon out of a disc and sanding it smooth. Add a handle or make one from other scrap parts of you stump. Or, paint a checkerboard an a disc from the stump, for a game table for the whole family.
Use a core rotted disc as a flower vase, or, put a cup hook on the back, add a plaid bow and call it a wreath! Or, do it this way.
Furniture in the house, or leave the stump in place for a piece of furniture in the garden, wood makes for a durable comfortable place to sit.
