Default Flattening a stump

Hello all,

Anyone have any luck flattening a stump?

Stump is about 3 to 4 ft in diameter.

Thinking boxing it out with joined top 2x6's screwed to the sides, with a sled on top to remove material.

Thoughts?

Thanks, Tripp

That works. Seems to me I might have seen that on either youtube or one of the pinterest pages.

So that begs the question are you going to leave it in the ground, or take it out and eventually make something from it?

What kind of tree was it?

If you just want to flatten it, use a chainsaw...
