Gorgeous cherry slab. The grain in the Nakashima butterfly appears to be parallel to that in the cherry. Won’t that mean it could break more easily ?

Nice job on this with a beautiful cherry slab and the maple bowties complement the cherry. Question: How did you attach the legs to the slab???

Very nice. I am concerned that without some cut outs in the legs it may rock on slightly uneven floors. The bow ties compliment the cherry beautifully. The figure along the largest crack is stunning.

I think the grain on the butterflies is actually correct, there may be some ribbon/tiger appearance that makes it appear as the grain is running parallel.
This is a gorgeous table, just beautiful! I had initially wanted to do a similar design on my tableBut after many discussions with others I was concerned about stability without a stretcher/shelf so I put the shelf in. You legs appear thicker than mine so perhaps you get more stability. Otherwise I’d be worried about someone falling into it and breaking the legs off. I imagine it feels solid? How did you attach the legs?
Again, wonderful work! Thanks for sharing
