Inspiration!

Chris and Laurie had to have a tree cut down this year. When Laurie saw the trunk pieces, she thought of this. We saw this awesome table on a garden tour a few years ago. She e-mailed me a picture and asked if I'd like one. You know I said YES!
Chris used a hoist for a car engine to get the wood into his truck. He brought a piece of plywood and put it on top of the stump. We decided how to cut the plywood and I started covering it with cement. (Remember that 90 lb. bag of cement I bought!)
Laurie had the idea to put ferns in the table top. I had accidentally broke off some pieces of a large fern when I was trimming. I pushed them into the wet cement and left them for a while.
I LOVE it and think it's a perfect addition to my shade garden!
