So, late last year in south Mississippi, we had a small hurricane. While damage was minimal, the storm did down some trees. This tree was in a neighbor’s yard, and fell naturally due to the high winds. It was severely eaten by insects and lost its structural integrity. It did however have a very unique look and i thought it was cool… So i picked it up and brought it home. I struggled for several months on what to do with the one of a kind piece of wood, and one day the idea hit me!!! I could make it my shop stool!!! it would serve a purpose and add a interesting flair to my workshop. Check out my process and how i made this extraordinary project in my build video, here…

Interesting build. A lot more went into it than it first appears. Good work documenting all the details in the video.
