If the stump won’t stand on its own with out the slab on top, it certainly will not have a center of gravity that will work with the slab on top.

Looks like you will need a heavy base under the stump that is almost as large as the table top, then bolt it together. But you don’t want the base to distract, visually, from the top.

The base could be an ellipse, about 12” wide by 40” long, made out of 1/4” steel, and painted flat black. That would weigh about 30 lbs, and would help balance everything.
