    split it in two. flatten one face. attach boards to table base and leave 1/4" gap between them. insert giant dovetails.

    thank george nakashima for the idea.

    PS-if you slice that board into a half-dozen pieces and glue it back up, your ticket to woodworker heaven will be revoked.

    Oh my. I better won't let that happen
    The split table with the butterflies is a great idea and the gap will solve the joining flatness problem.

    I appreciate the idea of sending the slab to one or the other Scott but I find it unconscionable to get them in the same quandary. So I will man up and solve the problem myself.
