That would be a very nice piece done in oak or walnut with traditional legs, but you have shown us an incredible table in mesquite. Along with Osage Orange, Mesquite must be one of the more difficult carving woods. Add to that the technical challenges in attaching the long horn legs and you have a real tour de force. Excellent work!! And, a beautiful piece!!
