Cut the Tree Trunk
If you have a tree that you need to cut down or a tree stump that remains from a fallen tree, you can turn the remaining stump into the base of an outdoor table. In this project the tree was growing in a patio area; the DIY team cut the tree down but kept the stump, turning it into a functional table base for a two-tiered patio table.
After the tree has been cut down, leave enough of the trunk to the desired height for the table. Make the cut as flat and level as possible. Our tree had a low-growing branch, so we are easily able to make a two-tiered table. Depending on the thickness of the stump, you can cut the stump at two different levels to create your two-tiered table.
