The dimensions can vary according to your needs and preferences. And the log can’t be used just as a table. It can be a stool too or it can simply be for décor. But let’s get back to the steps you have to follow in order to actually make the stump look good.

Once you cut it to the size you wanted, remove the bark and sand it smooth. Then you can also paint the stump. You can paint the tops, the sides or the whole thing. In case you’re worried that the table will be hard to move around you can simply add wheels and make it a mobile piece of furniture. The best thing about a stump table or chair is that it’s so full of character it looks great in any décor, even a more elegant and refined one.
