To make a coffee table out of a tree trunk, you will need the following materials:

- Glass sheet
- Sand paper
- Table saw
- Drill and drill bit
- Wood glue
- Paint or sealer
Prepare the Trunk
The first step is to prepare the tree trunk. If the trunk is too long, use the table saw to cut it to the desired size. Remove any outer bark and smooth the surface with the sand paper. Make sure the surface of the trunk is flat and even.
Attach the Glass
Next, using the drill bit, drill several evenly spaced holes along one edge of the trunk. Place the glass sheet on top of the trunk and line up the holes with the edge of the glass. Secure the glass to the trunk with screws and wood glue. If necessary, use a sealant to fill in any gaps between the glass and the trunk.
Finally, paint or seal the trunk to protect it from the elements and prevent it from warping. Now your tree trunk glass coffee table is complete and ready to be used!
