This is the same Table Top from my previous project post , but I had these other legs that I didn’t think would look good and so I decided to try them on for size and I think I like these better . I think the other legs might have been to big and took away from the beauty of the table top itself , I would really like to know what other people think, thanks.

I don’t remember the other legs, but my first thought was what a beautiful top,
Legs don’t do it justice.

I love these slab tables, something I could only dream of doing. Personally, I think the thicker legs are more in proportion to the stoutness of the slab. However you deliver it, it’s beautiful.

Beautiful job finishing the top, What exactly is the top coat? As for the legs I could go either way but I think the square ones are more in tune with the top.

I had to bring up your previous project and compare them side-by-side. Normally I am not a fan of the hair pin legs, but I do like this version better. The legs seem to be just the balance that was needed.

beautiful work of art.
I have a few logs of California live oak that I plan to make something with, but I have read that it’s difficult to work with this type of wood, because of its hardness and twisted grain. your thoughts?
