Great looking table. I would love to be able to make a project like this (someday…). Could you share how the top is attached to the base?

I’m really liking the changes as well as what stays the same. Great pedastool design. Epoxy for wear and oil based poly for the rest.

Another Top 3!

I would love to be able to eat at that table and study the wood grain. beautiful. I take it that someone else will be enjoying it rather than yourself.

Beautiful, Monte. The top is awesome and the base is extraordinarily well done.
However, I am deeply concerned about the number of boards used.
