Inside usage I hope. That cherry will love some sun time to darken if you keep rotating it, beaut of a burl!

Beautiful Table!!!!   The Burl is Stunning!!
Great workmanship!!!!!  Really well-made.!!!!
O like the live edge.....How do you retain the live edge so it doesn'  fall off......I would ike to make a project with a live edge sometime.

Beautiful build, nice design & construction. That burl fantastic looking, a genuine one of a kind.
rivers-thanks my friend.
petey-thanks bud.
cliff- thanks. everyone says take off the bark because it will eventually fall off. well ive done a few live edge tables, maple burl and mrytlewood and some were done over 20 years ago and the bark is still solid. some say it's due to when the tree was cut  ?
OT-thanks my friend.

Nice build and the burl is one of the biggest I ever saw. Where did you get your hands on that piece?

when my dad lived in oregon he helped his friend build his new shop building,as a thank you he gave my dad literally a truck load of mrytlewood slab and tons of burl wood like this. there was probably at least 40 slabs of mrytlewood. thats what i made all the tables i posted from. sadly dad has long since passed as did my wood supply.

Thank you for the Information. 
I'll keep it in mind for when I make a project with a live edge.
Regards......Cliff 
it's all gonna depend on the slab though and it's condition. all the ones i got were very solid and dry.
