This chair and table combo handcrafted from a tree trunk could be the ultimate DIY project. Simply crafted from standard tree trunk, the functional chair has a flat base and a curved, sanded area to sit on. To make this piece into a raised chair, all you have to do is attach four steel chair legs, which can be driven deep into the wood to make sure the chair is secure.

The accompanying coffee table is also astoundingly simple and easy to make -- it's simply a tree trunk with a plank of flat wood attached into a slot in the side. Together, these pieces look very rustic and homemade and would look perfect in a homely wooden cabin.

The emergence of hand-carved tree trunk furniture has inspired many home DIY enthusiasts to make their own furnishings.
