Rough structure with plane shavings

This picture shows a series of boards that have been roughly cut to length, height and laminated together with threaded rods. These shavings planed off had a warm feel to them and looked kind of artistic so I took this picture. The table top structure will be a dining room table. It is about 6ft by 3ft and 2.5 inches thick. The 3/4" boards were part of mock beams on a ceiling structure of my neighbors house. The rough boards were around 14ft long and I could not resist re purposing them. The knots in the edge grain, often seen as imperfections by others, are placed somewhat like a florist would arrange a bouquet, with symmetry in mind.
