I love the table just the way it is. Only problem I can see is maybe you should put some kid of bracing in the middle for strenght. How big is the table top?

Hi!! You can’t see there but i used a rectangle with very tick wood to fix the tabletop to the legs… i think this should work. Size of the tabletop is: 125cm x 94,5cm

I think these legs would look great holding a raw edged slab of wood or maybe even several smaller slabs. Keep the edges raw and uneven to match the rustic texture of the legs. If you have to cut the ends of the slabs to shorten, don’t leave the edge straight, make it uneven. I hate it when rustic furniture has machine cut edges, as it doesn’t match the rustic, natural raw edge, or barked wood that is usually incorporated. You also want to keep the table top looking thick to be in porportion of the thick, round legs. You may be able to add a side trim of raw edged or barked wood to do this. Just make sure the design is consistent and flows together.
