This is an original design in which I wanted to showcase the funky natural curve of the curly cherry slab.

How did you cut the slabs and the framing pieces to match up?
Overlay and cut with a jigsaw?

I might be stealing that idea :D

The walnut framing is made up of two boards glued up after the slabs profile was traced out, bandsawed, and router rabbited. Then they were glued to the slab. The whole assembly has a long tenon and is glued in the center, and the posts function as over sized bread ends. I know it sounds funny, but it has proven to be durable. Thanks for the interest!
