This table is almost 4’x4’ it is waterfall bubinga and one of the most beautiful woods I have ever seen I got it for a steal in an “ugly” wood sale I had been eye humping it for a long time so by the time I worked up the guts to spend the money I had built the base about a million times in my head. I went with a very minimal base as to not make the base compete with this perfect piece of wood. I drool at the thought of doing a piece like this as a conference table or a dinning room table. I have seen pictures of waterfall 5’ wide and up to 20-30’ long

The wood really stands out against the base.

The top is beautiful !!
The “railroad tie” base is a little too much in the pictures. I’m sure it looks better in person though. The top appears to be so thin compared to the base which really stands out being so dark and “bulky”. I really like the design , just not the massive scale.
No offense , JMHO : )

It looks like the Eye of Sauron in Lord of the rings among other things. Beautiful.

Very slick, love the base too! What would a piece of bubinga like this normally cost?

I have too agree the wood is the main focus that is why I did not even try to make a base that was overly complicated the wood is the star in this show. It could be on a 5 gallon bucket and still look good I only hope I did some justice with the base. deucefour a piece like this can go for and I have looked around with this amount of fig. and size around 600-1000 bucks although I have seen some pieces 10 to 20 feet long for 3000 so I am not the authority on the price but I spent way way less for my piece that is why I bought it. I got it for a song. It was one of those deals you can’t pass . But the problem is getting a client to spend the money to get to work with such beautiful and special kind of wood.Some day I will get to make a huge slab table out of one of these beautiful specimen.
