you were right about the breadboard ends, not only different but VERY attractive as is the whole project

Very nicely done, I like the contrast of the walnut ends. I think using the live edge for the apron is really unique also.

The aprons are just regular 4 square boards I made them look like live edge. I used a 4 1/2” grinder and a flap wheel to rough out the shape, then used a wood burning tool to burn in the bug trails, then used a small butane torch to make darker in spots than others and, then used some amber trans tint dye with alcohol over the faux live edge. It took me awhile to work up enough nerve to try this technique I’d never seen anyone try this so I practiced on some scrap I liked the effect on my practice piece than did it on the aprons before the final sanding and assembly of the base. Thanks everyone for the positive feed back!

love a good live edge piece of furniture and I really love this one.i like the contrast of the walnut bread boards and butterflies really works well.your faux live edge came out great I doubt most people would even know you faked it.overall its a beautiful table.
