Your base is very narrow. Looks like the table would be inclined to tip sideways. Maybe putting the pieces in a cross shape would be more stable? I would think the base should be almost the size of the top.

Yah I think you're right about the feet length, I'll update the 'able about that issue.

Since my previous comment was pretty obscure, I created my first instructable to show what I meant. http://www.instructables.com/id/Jig-for-surfacing-with-a-router/

I used a router mounted in the center of a board over twice as long as the diameter of the round. Level up a support on each side and rout off the high spots.

I think you're matching the wrong shape - you traced the bottom of the branch where it will line up with the top of the feet but then you're drawing it on the bottom of the feet, so you'll end up with the mirror image of the hole you really want. This only works if your branch is symmetrical.

DOH! You're right!!!
I'll have to add an extra step to de-blooberfy that part of the instructable.
Thanks for the tip.
