The legs are 4” pipe connected by 3/4” pipe, sponge painted by my wife, then lacquered.

The slab is 2 1/2” thick. It floats on the base with disks of 1/2” ply attached to the underside that fit into the legs. Very stable it is.

No stain at all. The photo makes it appear lighter and more orange than it really isIt’s more of a dark chocolate red.

Beautiful table and your wife did a super job on the legs. I’d do some pipe legs if I could get them painted that cool!

For me again? I like the live edge and the simpler base which causes the eye to move with the piece? Really nice!
