Stump what to do with it?

Post  quatrefi on Tue Nov 15, 2011 10:25 pm

Hello, a friend of mine found this stump and bring it back to me, thinkink it could be useful for bonsaï.
I don't know wht kind of tree it was, it's not very hard, i could try a wood hardener to make it hader.

I can use it as a pot, (irst picture) or in the other way as a penjing, what do you think?

The first picture makes it look like it would be a comfortable bench from which to view your trees.

If you could find a large stone slab, to place on top, you could make a nice display table/bench for a large tree or a few smaller trees. I think a wood sealer/preservative/hardener would make it last longer.
Nice piece of wood!

That wood will be nice inside an aquarium. Lots of fish will love it.

If you could carve a few flat places on the stump that are at different levels, it could be used for a unique shohin display stand.

Thanks for your replies.
Jim a bench woud be ok but it's too low.
Katoom for fishes i would need a very big aquarium Very Happy (and fishes too)
Mike and Todd A display for shohin or a large tree is a good idea, but it would need to be carved not too regulary to make it still look natural.

My first idea was to carve it to make a big pot (first picture) or to plant several shohin on it to make a penjing (other pictures)
The thing is that in both cases, it will be hard to move it.
