So I am trying to develop the best way to make these stump stools, and I think I figured out every wrong way to do them. Here are some things I have learned along the way:
1. Use logs that have already shed their bark, they will be drier and it will save a ton of work.
2. Do not use a wire wheel, it gouges the wood too much, then you spend a ton of time sanding out the gouges.
3. Spar urethane takes too many coats to build up a good layer. I later switched to epoxy.
4. When using epoxy, the end grain has to be sealed, either with several coats of urethane, or with wood filler. I tried both with mixed results.
The last 2 pictures in this video were finished with epoxy which gives it a beautiful thick, durable, wet-look coating.
