Beautiful, love the base and top. Any chance on getting a picture of the underside how you connected the two?

Very nice, must have been a lot of work flattening that top.

Great looking table—I love that live-edge slab! And those chairs are pretty cool looking also!

Great looking table (love the bowties). The design/execution on the chair is outstanding!

thank you everyone.

Siavosh I will try to remember to get a shot of the underside for you. not much to see…top is bolted to the base.

Love the table. Design and aesthetics are out of the world. Just one question – does the small pedestal make it stable enough for an everyday table for a family and kids?

That is a beautiful piece of work. Nice Job. Is it a client piece or personal? Love the chairs too, did you make those also for this?

Mike Beauvais, the table is very stable. size kinda limits it to 4 people.

Kaleb, yes I made the chairs but they are going to a client in NJ and the table i made for spec to take to shows.

This is a wonderful table. I like the leg design. Also like the bow ties in “checked top” Much nicer than cutting out and piecing in to cover a flaw in wood. WOW !

Great looking piece of furniture, beautiful all around, live edge, natural split, and great work o those Dutchmans.
