30” tall. with what looks like elephant feet. Customer asked for it just like that with holey logs for the rustic look. I would of filled in with epoxy and rocks but I’m all out of epoxy, so thats all she wrote, again the customer wanted it like that.

TreeBones, I cut that with a chainsaw, then I shaped it flat with chainsaw across the top on slow. Finally I used a minigringer with a 36grit disk, then a beltsander with 60 and 100, then by hand with 220. I sanded the rest on lathe up to 220grit. the edge I used wire disk with minigrinder. It only took a 3days of spare time.

I thought from the title it was a foot stool for an elephant. Very cool!

Hey, I rode an elephant. You had to have a platform to get up to it, so an elephant footed stool may work too.
