Late last summer we scored lots of firewood from Craigslist for our great intentions of an autumn full of bonfires. Since we had quite a bit left over, we thought of the wood when the holidays came and we played host to many people (without having many chairs).
ReadyMade's version shows a hollowed out stump, great for storage. The How To steps are not available online, but they involve a lot of drilling for creating the storage cubby and lid. And guess what? They used felt on the bottom too. For the step-by-step instructions for ReadyMade's storage/seating stump, check out page 41 of the latest issue.
If you aren't hurting for storage or don't have the drilling supplies or skills, our simple version is a great way to go too.
