This is a table with raw wood, i am going to change the tabletop as soon as i can with a more interesting essenceā€¦ do you have any suggestion?! I’d like to keep it minimal but rustic.

I like it as it is. Barn wood would look good. OR just distress the top and color it to match the legs.

Making the edges of the top a little more free-form would also be a nice effect to simulate a live edge.

I think Charles_Neil did a video on creating a faux live edge.

First of all, I like it as it is.

This sounds ambitious, but I wonder if you could make a table top out of split logs with the flat side up. I think you would have to put some kind of a support frame underneath the top, but you could probably make that somewhat inconspicuous. If the logs are green, they will shrink some with the passage of time and you would have to account for that.

take a blow torch to it, then seal it with a few coats of satin finish urethane.
