Topic tags/keywords: cherry live edge slab table

I have this nice slab of cherry, with a pretty crotch figure.
I would like to make a live edge table with it, but I am having trouble coming up with a suitable design for the legs or base.

Cherry slab
The chalk lines are a reference for where I think would be the best cuts.

Any constructive opinions would be greatly appreciated

Why not just a simple rectangular base, with just extra overhang at the curve? Or you could rethink the top to a triangle, leaving that great crotch grain, and extending the top down past, and avoiding the knot, but with three legs?

What about an Asian-inspired base? Maybe something with bell-bottom legs and a trestle? That’s a beautiful piece of wood. A couple of dutchmans might be nice too.
