Well this is the finished table! Yahoo! It has nylon adjustable feet for leveling. The Glass is a crystal light smoke with a beveled edge. What is cool about the beveled edge is that I gives a black ring around the glass. And Last but not least the base is a hollowed out box Elder burl. This was an enjoyable project and I love the outcome!
Thanks everyone for helping me finish this project.

That is a beautiful burl. Were you able to save the inside portion for another use?

I did not save any of the burl. It was a little hollow to begin with but still lots of chips. I used an arbor tech on a 4” grander to hollow it out.

Great work as usual, Anyone would love to see that under the tree Christmas morning, or on account of the size, by the tree on Christmas day haha.
