I think you have a lot of options here. I like steel bases for natural edge tables for a nice balanced look. Chunky square legs in the same species can also work well. Another neat approach is to use a secondary wood such as poplar for the base, and paint it black. This fades the base into the background and showcases your natural edge slab.
