Figured Mahogany Slab

Well, a friend sent me a link to this mahogany slab that someone donated to the wood shop program at Dartmouth College. So yesterday, I took a little ride over to check it out and ended up buying it.  It’s unusual for me in that there are no live edges and it is quite thick … about 4 to 4.5″. At first, I was going to pass, but after walking around the Hood Museum for a bit, I decided to go back and buy it while I was there rather than change my mind after I got home and then kick myself because I would have to drive back to get it.
So, what’s it going to be? Personally, left to my own devices, I vote for a ‘power desk’ . Polished or bronzed steel minimalist base, maybe a couple of butterflies, maybe a little stain to highlight the figure.
I’ll have to sleep on it, but whatever it’s gonna be will be pretty spectacular.
Open to your suggestions.
