Typically these are difficult to sell....I think that you should get on the phone and call some dealers in your area and ask them if they are interested or if they can steer you to someone who would be...and have some digital pictures that you can email to any prospect..I once restored a block that weighed over 900lbs....and sat on a massive African Mahagony base..you could put a whole cow on it, it was almost 8 feet long by 3 foot wide by 12" thick. Paul Newman bought it for one of his houses to use as a coffee table, I had to cut it down to around 20" and we had to brace the floor underneath it in the room it was going. You'll have to hunt for someone to buy it...but you probably will be successful, my guess is that if it looks good, (ready for an antique store), it will be easier to sell...best of luck-
