“Legs” Table, created from Old Growth Redwood

I couldn’t help it…I was trimming slabs one day, and the resulting cut off looked so much like a leg and foot…Knowing the matching slab would have another, I quickly found & secured the other “leg”. The resulting table gives a hint of my warped sense of humor…
Yep, the shape is natural…even the little heel on the boot…Just leveled the bottom a bit!

I think I want to use this idea only make “life-like” feet to match the hand. With real toes and everything

When I looked at the photos before reading the description, my first thought was. “OIh my God….does she realize those look like actual feet?” LOL!

Hah! That’s great. They remind me of the wicked witch post-squishing in the Wizard of Oz. LOL

Beautiful wood as well.
