I like the design.  Couple of questions--Is there going to be any finish put on the metal?  Just trying to imagine it with a couple of different finishes...such as blackened.  Would be curious to see the final product if you are doing a finish.

Also..although I'm only very roughly estimating and assuming the frame which the 3/4" forged bars are hanging off of is also 3/4" solid bar---weight calculates to almost 200 lbs.  Add a top and you can be increasing that by 20-50+ lbs. Wondering if the perception of that is darned heavy or darned sturdy.  I know it's just a perception issue but curious whether heavyweight like that "feels" good to you or if it is a bit surprisingly heavy for a coffee table.  I'm not sure how I'd interpret that if I had similar in my house.

(yes, that last one was a weird question but I always try and get a feel for perception as that's what clients tend to judge by)

 Frame has a wax finish, - both slightly heavy and very sturdy. I was contacted to make the frame thru the wood guy - it was his client that bought the table.

Thanks.  It was beautiful work.  Had the simplicity not to over-power the design with the forged details to make it clear that hands actually made each piece.
