hi, i'm new to woodworking and am wondering if it would be possible to smoothe out this piece of log and path the holes in it made by nails without any professional equipment.
Is something like wood glue or something accessible? would i get by with sandpaper?
I want to make a small table legs from it

Take a No.5 jack plane to the rough surfaces after the table legs are ripped out.

Wood putty and sand paper for the hole

What kind of tools do you have at home?

The top layer needs to go, but that's not too hard.

To fill the holes I'd just get some similar wood, drill out the holes so they're properly round and just plug them up.

Sand or plane rough sides.
Make a putty out of wood glue and sawdust to fill the holes

Doing it with sand paper is gonna be hell. You'll need to start with very rough grits, like 80 I guess, and work your way up to higher ones until you reach the smoothness you want. A plane is really the way to do this.

As for wood putty, the tips I've head is that you stain it first and then putty it to match the stain. Putty doesn't take the color of the stain the same way wood does so if you do it before it wont match. If you are painting it doesn't matter.
