Winter is a good time for projects.
About a year ago we had a strong, icy, windy winter storm and a few trees fell over or were damaged bad enough that they needed removed. I saved a few of the bigger stumps for an outside table and chairs for our girls. We don't get much summer, but a nice picnic table is essential for those summer days. A little chainsaw work and some varnish made these chars and table. (those are compost bins in the background to give it a homey feel!)
