We cleaned up the top and cut a square/straight edge. The I fab'ed
a base for it -- simple, 4 legs, stretcher, and so on. We laid the table
top halves across the top, with the narrow edges abutting -- so that
the desk is something like 6' long and about 2' deep.
It looks really good.

It took maybe a weekend of work
