Hi Keith, I am not a big fan of free form tables but I am betting you can gaze at the grain in yours for hours and enjoy it. Welcome.

That is a lovely piece of wood Keith. I didn't know that papaya was a good lumber wood but then it doesn't grow anywhere near here either. Welcome to the forum.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
