I'll be honest, I'm not too crazy about the legs, they still looks like 2x4s but the table top looks the tits.

Is this entire forum basically a rehash of 2+ year old threads?

^ That looks awesome. Would love to learn how to do the starburst finish. Are all those custom 100% by you?

12. I want to cut 6" base as a miter, not a bevel. Much easier i think.

Definitely. My next purchase is a 12" miter. I've already run into the limit of my 10" when making the coasters. Either that or I need a band saw.
