I like the design. I especially appreciate you sharing your finish schedule. Seeing the result of your schedule helps me with a better understanding how that approach will turn out. Nice detail. One question. Do you think the top will remain stable? It looks elegantly thin, how did you do the glue up?

The top is actually 1” thick. I ran a 3/8” roundover on the bottom and a thumbnail bit around the top. With the absence of an apron and the edge detail, it gives the illusion of a thinner top. Which is what I was going for so I guess it worked.
