After the first two tables I started to see other possibilities . I’ve had this chunk of wood for a while and loved the look but thought it had too many splits and flaws to be able to cut it up into useable pieces. Idea, keep it whole. This is what happened…..........Base is round of walnut. The middle is cherry. The top, not really sure. Elm, Hemlock? Finish with teak oil.

Doesn’t make any difference what the top is when it’s this good looking. How much would you say that top weighed. Excellent job !!! Mel

Mel, just a guess, around 25-30 pounds. It’s three inches thick. The table is very stable. It’d take a lot to knock this over. Not really top heavy…..........

The wild grain in that piece is too fun to look at. I’m glad you mentioned the stability, because that was my first thought when looking at it.
