I think it is beautiful.

Just a question, why not use walnut dowels to support it?

I went with the aluminum dowels to give the table a more contemporary look & visual interest.

Beautiful. Always love live edge tables. Butterflies look great as well as being functional. And that is a textbook mortise and tenon. Nicely done.

What a great table! It’s beautiful… A live edge slab table is in my future – do you mind a question? Any advice on what depth the butterflies should be set to? I’m looking for any good general guidelines

I like to go 2/3” the thickness of the top itself for butterfly depth.
