Re: My Dad "Bought the farm"

I'm pretty sure a stone buddha or piece of art glass isnt going to cover the hole in a deck left from the dead oak...

I've seen some pretty nice decorative wooden "wells". I was thinking of getting one and covering the access plate to my septic tank. Its a good 5 miles to the nearest trailer park, but then again, Yuba City isnt exactly Metro...

Re: My Dad "Bought the farm"

Right now there are three ideas on the block. A large planter, a bird house/feeder, or a flag pole. The first two could be put in without removing the tree stump, which is 6 feet high. The flag pole would require more work. DW likes the idea of the flag pole, go figure.

Re: My Dad "Bought the farm"

Why not cut the stump off to table level finish it off and use it as a table or bar? Or add a table top to it to accent the rest of your decor.
