They Took Apart An Old Tree They Climbed As Kids And Turned It Into A Priceless Heirloom

There is nothing better than spending quality time with family, especially if you can find a way to be creative together. Recently a father and daughter shared a day they spent making something that will be treasured by their family for years to come – take a look.

This looks like an unimpressive tree stump, but it belongs to a tree the daughter once climbed as a child and holds a lot of sentimental value. 

Dad used his belt sander to level the wood as much as possible. 

Although he is legally blind, he was able to complete the job using other senses. 

Next it was time to crush some turquoise – you’ll see why. 

The daughter completed a little more sanding. 

And dad checked her work. 


The sanding revealed beautiful details in the wood. 

A turquoise inlay was then added using epoxy resin. 

Which needed to be smoothed one last time. 

It’s gorgeous, but what is it going to be?

Something that needs wooden legs…

That are made of oak. 

A duplicator jig guaranteed that each leg was the same size. 


At 13”, the wood doubled as a joke pirate leg. 

After rounding and tapering with sandpaper, the legs look pretty great.

Dad cut a few more pieces to make sure that the structure would be sturdy, and…

Voila. A gorgeous table that will no doubt make a prized family heirloom. 

The love and craftsmanship that went into creating this beautiful table is apparent in the finished product. Share these incredible images with your family – who knows what they might be inspired to build.
