Pete came over to do some final sanding and we went ahead and edge glued the table top. It was too bad that even though the top came from a single long plank that I couldn't get very good grain matching. Basically, on one side there was some really bad checking and a split going in about 14", so it had to be cut off. That left just one 'good' side, so the edge will be pretty glaring, but at least it's the same species. Only the final finish will tell. All that's left is to do some final cross cutting and sanding of the top, put the top and base together and then put the finish on.
