I have a friend who does live edge furniture. He  has a whole room of stumps that they debark and sand. A lot of hand sanding at that company. The stumps make some fantastic table bases.

I use flap wheels. Makes the sanding easy.

Collector and builder of many things.

He may also. Sounds like a good idea with stumps. I've seen only tops being sanded. There they want to keep all of the original contours so they sand by hand.

When I was in China I saw some really beautiful stump tables. I think they harvested stumps that grew either on a rock surface, or hard clay. All the roots spread out flat as a result, as the tree grew. Cut the stump off, intricately excavate all the little tiny rootlets, carefully remove the stump, and you have a lace-like table. They took off the little itty bitty hairy roots, but left ones down to at least half an inch diameter, maybe smaller. They painstakingly debarked the whole thing. I think $200 could have bought it, if you could have gotten it home. . . . . The maker probably spent months on it.
No matter how conventional wisdom may fly in the face of radical thought, it's still the most popular type.
