Live Edge Black Walnut and Poplar Dining Table

I took 2 book matched slabs of black walnut and a warped slab of poplar to start my project. I used a Ryobi biscuit joiner to join all the pieces. Then I used a router and a plan I found online to plane the 3 pieces flat. Due to imperfections in the black walnut, I added 1/2" x 2" pieces on the end to create 2 depressions. I then filled the depressions with river stones and epoxy. It sits on an industrial base ordered from India, which works to lift and lower the table.
