Very good job done there. But i would love to have a large tree stump to use as a planter or maybe do some carving on......

Well the stump that is already there I think I am just going to carve out the middle section and plant something in it...haven't decided what yet. The tree that's still standing...I am planning on leaving about a 4' stump and with a little luck, a lot of hard work and a ton of patience...I want to carve it into a lifesized coyote howling. We'll see how THAT goes lol My husband thinks I'm nuts

I did NOT carve this one below but it's almost exactly what I was thinking of doing except mine would be flush with the ground to make him look like he was just sitting there.

I haven't gotten any yet but my boss has a couple of old cracked stock tanks like the long skinny one you have that he is going to give me eventually. My uncle-in-law(is that even a proper term???) gave me some nice planters yesterday that were headed for the dumpster so they will get stuff planted. I am going to the farm auction in town tomorrow to maybe find some other creative stuff for my gardens & to plant in and then towards the end of the week I'm going to hit up the thrift stores in search of some more smaller planters. :-)
