I love walnut, and that's a pretty slab!

Aside from all the aquarium stuff, can I ask what braces you used to support your slab? I have two bookmatched live edge slabs that are 77" long, 15" wide at the narrowest measurement, and 1" thick. I am putting them just under the sill of my living room windows for "cat benches", a place for my two cats to hang out & watch the world go by (I have 68" of window on each side of my living room, one bench per window).

I can't decide if I want to "float" the walnut and have open floor underneath, or use it as lids on a boxed in seating bench for extra storage. I have a constant fear of warp and twist in my head because my slabs are only 1" thick so I will probably go with the storage bench, but I'd love to see a pic of the underneath where your braces are!
