no time to complete this mahogany dining table

I have planned to build a huge mahogany dining table, but eventually have no time to finish it. Now only the table top was completed without finishing. Anyone in NY/NJ area interested in continuing this project? I spent more than $600 on materials/shipping etc. I can hand it to you with only $300.

Built from well selected 2'' thick mahogany sapele solid wood. Length 92'', width 35'' and 2'' thick without apron. The apron is 2.5'' thick, built from high-quality exotic birdseye sapele. I have meant to make this dining table a legacy gift for our family but have no time to finish it. The construction is strong and very heavy. Boards were joined using oak tenons. You can see that the patterns, designed even the trim edges were well artistic work and rarely found elsewhere.

This table top has been finished using Danish oil, and a layer of stain. After the stain I have not yet sand it so the color looks little bit uneven. Since then this table top is wrapped and stored in my apartment for several months. You can continue this project and add your favorite table legs and make it a dining table or butcher table
