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 !

Thanks! yeah, once it leaves there is really no telling what will happen. It’s a little bit hard to explain that to people with no experience with wood/wood movement, but I suppose they’ll learn! Interesting idea with the kerf cuts. I’ve never heard that.
