Like this a lot. Have had a similar project in the works for a long time but have not figured out how the base will work. Could you post some pics of the base & the attachment points to the slab?

Too bad for the ants – great job! You did a wonderful job with the wood. Thanks for sharing your work.

Very nice. I should not be so discouraged with all the ant homes I have and just use them as they are. Well done.

Sweet look. You’ve almost got a drink holder in that knot.

Nice use of natural materials, most folks would have cut out the character of the ant damage. This type of project is right down my alley.

Very nice indeed. What are the dimensions of it?
I have a thin slab of walnut crotch that is just calling to be a table similar to this.
Great work.
