Mesquite Table on Sculpted Base

This is the second table I've made from consecute cuts of a double-trunk mesquite tree obtained from Art Flores at the Tu,acacori Mesquite-Sawmill. The table top slab is just over 2 inches thick and measures 34 inches wide by 22 inches deep. I sculpted the base pillar from a single beam of mesquite that originally measured about 8 inches by 6 inches. The table top and pillar sit atop a thick platform of mesquite, sculpted with drop corners that impart the appearance that the corners actually support the whole. In  fact, the corners are about one-sixteenth of an inch shy of the floor and the table rests on a secure base.
