Well anyways what I am doing here is... I cut down three 2X4's at 10 inchs a piece. I wanted to raise the stump 6 inches in total height, so I carved out three sections that were 4 X 4 X 1.5 so I could fit the wood into the slots. I used three half inch X 4 inch bolt screws to connect the 2 X 4's together. My impact drill makes this process super easy.
