from tree to chair

Gusty winds most likely contributed to this dead tree being transformed in to a chair.  It's safer for the public and offers a place to rest with a view.

  1. Hi Bill.

    That is very nice.
    And still functional from the tree.

  3. This is certainly unique to my experience. I've seen numerous carvings from trees but this is new and great fun. And I don't think it will topple over backward very easily! :)

  5. What a great idea!!! I love that someone was smart enough not to just cut the whole thing to the ground and cut it up for firewood. Have a great week. Diana

  7. I've seen seats like this before - but never one with arm-rests. Luxury!

  8. So much nicer than a stump which is an eyesore! This is more like a tree throne! Very creative!

  9. I like the chair and it's a good use. However, I also like the way the tree looked against the horizon.

  10. Now that's a cool chair and somebody had a good eye to create it.

  16. I just looked at this again and got to wondering if, before you took the picture, you addressed the chair - you know, to get permission to photograph?

  17. Wonderful initiative! Lovely shots too!

  18. How clever. It reminds me of one of my posts from a couple of weeks ago. Hurricane Irma toppled a favorite huge old tree. The homeowner hired a chainsaw artist to turn the stump into a sculpture of five dolphins. Smart people, no?

  19. How nice that you caught before and after shots! It's sad to see a tree go but the transformation is so much better than a pile of firewood.
