Ever wonder if you can do something and then just go for it? I'm totally that DIYer. If I think it might work, then I'm going to try it. Especially if the cost isn't that high. Well, I saw these random tree stumps laying around our neighborhood that I had already found useful when making a Tree Stump Rolling Plant Stand. I decided I wanted to make something else. So, I decided to make a butcher block cutting board and; guess what? It totally worked! Today, I'm sharing How to Make a Cutting Board Out of a Tree Stump and it's so easy!
To get the step-by-step tutorial, pop on over to eHow where I've explained the whole process.
*Oh, and a special thanks to my Dad for giving me a hand with the chainsaw.
You are on a roll with the tree projects. Totally love it
I know! Not sure what's gotten into me.

You are my savior. My husband and I have been arguing over a cutting board for probably a year now. No joke! But I do believe this gorgeous thing will appease us both. Thanks for the inspiration 😉
You are quite welcome! A tip - try to use dried out wood if you are going to make one. Different types of fresh would can split as they edge and dry out.
This is wonderful! I was wondering what kind of wood you used. Keep up the good work! 🙂
I have no idea!!
Question.. I have 4 slabs, but they are quite wet. Should I let them dry? Sand and wax until I'm ready to tackle the 3? Trying to sort out a plan. Any help would be great!
Yes! You need to let them dry or you can take them to a wood kiln (some of the woodworkers in town have these).
Logs that come from a old tree. Can they be cut and heated (low in oven) to remove fungus and mold (I think)?
I've heard that but never tried it!
