Tree stump projects are always good to know. There are always stumps around if you just do a bit of searching, you won't have to look far. Here is a project I did with an old Christmas tree stump. Wood working tools help, and although you may not have any, perhaps a friend might or it might be worth the investment if you want to make a lot of these for Christmas presents.
|Chop down to 4.5 inches|
|Cut off bottom so there is one flat surface.|
|Use chop saw to cut a 3/4 inch groove into the stump one inch back from the front end. Use a chisel to flatten and smooth the groove.|
