The place lots of people get into trouble is attaching the top to the base and not accounting for expansion/contraction of the top in the joinery. I would also recommend bringing the slab inside where it will “live” for a couple of weeks prior to sanding it down to let it come to equilibrium with its environment. If it sits in an environment where the humidity is drastically different prior to being finished, it may twist and/or cup to some degree when you bring it into the controlled environment of the house.

Good luck. We like pictures here too :-) And for my own personal $.02, go with the Locust. I’m not a fan of Ash.
