Just finished this table with a granite top and cherry base. I've had a partial slab of granite sitting around for a while and wanted to make something out of it in order to make more room in my garage/workshop.

Yes I'm doing the granite fabrication as well. Circular saw outfitted with a diamond blade to section the slabs. Then angle grinder outfitted with a diamond blade to cut close to the circular line. Wood template to grind up to the circle using a z-wheel. Minor adjustments with a metal bond copper pad. Then route the upper and lower edge profile with a diamond profile bit pn my variable speed angle grinder. Just like wood working you can route a profile of your choice including bullnose, ogee etc. Then polish the edges using 9 step resin wet pads.That's very well done! Are you cutting the granite too, or sending it out? If you're cutting it, HOW?
I would not class myself as an expert at all - I have not done much woodworking - 2 or 3 items of furniture, hardwood floors etc. I'm sure you would have no problem doing something like this.I just took a better look at the construction. Very impressive work if you ask me . I’d love to be able to do that someday, but for now I’ll leave it to the experts
