Some would not trim the bottom of the pot, leaving is a flattish sort of bottom. By necessity of the process the edge that meets the table will be visually terminated below the top of the table...sort of like the pot is sitting in the table rather than on the table.
I prefer to give the pot some visual "loft" by trimming a foot into the pot. This gives the pot the appearance of sitting on the table and from a distance, it looks lighter on the table. All my opinions of course, but I think the pot looks more finished.
