Default Nara Low table

While at one of my wood dealers, I spotted a small stack of about thirty dirty looking, knotty boards. What caught my eye was the "live edge" on one side of each board. These Nara (Japanese Oak) boards are from Northern Japan (Hokkaido).
I struck a deal, for just three boards, they were dirty and I wasn't too sure about them.
Anyway, I ran them over the jointer and through the planer, and thought I'd make a low table and see how it comes out.

Here's what I finished up with. I kept the base simple, in keeping with the natural look top.
