That is nice
Finish looks good
I like the squared crossbar it gives a nice contrast

Nice job. This looks like a very sturdy table and the bowties are beautiful.

Very nice! Can you tell me the procedures that you followed to install the butterflies? Are they the same thickness as the table top?

That is a beautiful cotch and you did it proud! The butterflies add a nice element and your finish appears perfect. What finish did you use?

Great table. I’m working on one very similar right now. My top is a cross section of the trunk, rather than a plank, but the base is quite similar. I’m curious about the finish you chose. I’m debating using a simple oil/varnish or going with something that has a bit more durability like a poly for the table surface. What did you choose?
I’m also curious how you attached the base to the table top…?
