Timber! How can I use large (green) logs to make some simple stools?
I moved to a house in the woods, mostly pine, and a lot of it needs to come down because it was planted too close together, and also to open up the tree canopy so more light can come into the forest so more of the native plants can grow up and shield my home from view.
Since tree cutters will be here for 3 - 4 days with big tools (no jokes please) what should I ask them for - for example "Could you please cut me a few 20" tall logs I can use as stools on the patio?" How then do I work with this green wood and actually make stools? I was thinking I would strip the bark, put wood glue on the ends to seal the grain so it won't split, and then....?
I could use a few end tables for next to the beds or couches as well as some stools for the patio.
