just finished this for my brothers house. base is 4×6 and 2×6 solid walnut. he wanted it heavy… its built to be able to be taken apart quickly if needed but still solid the stretcher is attached with a bedrail connector and the 2 angle supports have 1/2 dowels and a sliding tennon in the bottom the a threaded insert bolt locking both sides of the angle bracket. takes about 1 minute to assemble. he wanted it professionally finished they used some kind of sprayed danish oil iv never seen before.

I think I can safely say I’ve never seen such large chunks of walnut before! You did great!

This is the most beautiful table I’ve ever seen! Now I know what I’m going to make for my dining room table. :-)

Wow, that’s colosal! I like that massive, rustic, live edge, old barn style.
