Beautiful slab !
Downside: Unfortunately solid wood moves with change in humidity..”moisture”.
You may end up with cracks andchecks as well as time goes on !
If your clients are aware of this it wont be much of an issue.
You might be able to make “kerf cuts” on the underside to relieve the movement.
The market here…..people are actually looking for tables with some imperfections…...they think its character !
If it were my build….I would try to make it as flat as possible in my shop…..what happens after is the clients !
