Pine Tree Stump Coffee Table

We found a tree stump and we're turning it into a coffee table with a glass top. We're planning to use Danish oil. We're not sure what type of wood it is, but I think it might be pine. Is Danish oil okay?

I think I would remove the bark before taking a stump inside. There are sometimes nasty bugs that you don't want in your house.

Spray the stump with diluted bleach water to kill any critters that are still in the wood. After it has dried, use a sanding sealer to seal the wood all the way around on every surface. Then sand until it is smooth on the top and bottom.

After that you will need to put on a finish. I use several coats of varnish. Sand between coats. Start with 80 grit and work up to about 400 grit for a really smooth finish.

Then get a quart of polyurethane and put several coats on, also sanding with very fine sandpaper between coats. You will know when you have the desired finish. It will shine.

Let it dry completely before using it, several days to about a week.
