It would definitely be unique but I’d have a few concerns. First would be cleaning. How do you get food and grime out from all of the grooves? My second concern would be making sure the top is completely level so objects sitting on top of the table don’t get caught as they are moved. I can see a wine glass bottom getting caught on a lip and spilling wine all over the table (leading us back to my first concern). It does look pretty cool though.

I you put a self-leveling epoxy coat on top you would be set.

Definitely not the whole top. Maybe a 3” border around the table
or on the face of the skirt, depending what your building.

Hi Fancy Shoes

Do what ever you want to the table top, I think you have a nice set of chisels, I like palm chisels to carve, hope to see some of your carvings posted here soon Bruce

When you are doing something creative, you are going to have to rely on your own mind’s eye for how a project looks. When I make stuff, I can see flaws everywhere, right down to the foot that a fly left in the finish before it dried and I flicked it off. Pick up a book or two from the local Woodcraft or Rockler and try the tutorials. What you have there could be used for hair on an animal that you carved.
