This is very similar to the one I made for my Uncle a few weeks ago. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/44354 We had his sitting by our front door for a week before I gave it to him and really liked it, so I decided to build one for myself from that same tree. This one is about 16” wide and 34” tall with all 2” thick slabs. I also did not add live edge trim to the sides of the top since the end grain looked so nice.
The right side “leg” has some beautiful grain. I kept planing it till the 3 light areas were connected by the lighter grain and it turned out looking neat. I would have liked to have the top overhang the sides, but the placement of that beautiful round figuring made my length limited.
