No one likes to see an old, beautiful tree fall ill and die, as many living things do, and have to cut it down. This talented guy had to bring a tree down in his yard, but instead of getting rid of the stump, he decided to do something simply amazing with the old stump: he gave it a second chance as a bench.
After the pear tree was destroyed in a storm, the fella decided to give it new life. First, he dried out the tree completely, then he split it in half. Next, he created a joint to connect the two halves. Took some work but he finally got it. Keep in mind the stump weighed a quarter of a tonne!
Once connected, he set to work sanding and leveling the stump. Eventually, it was smooth to the touch, so he set to work staining the wood. After hours of work, he had a beautiful new bench for his home. But that’s not all you can do with an old stump. Check out these awesome photos, courtesy of Mauthbaux on Imgur.
