Big table top!

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


I am finishing up what I consider an odd sized table. It is 5' x 5' out of 1 3/8" thick walnut. Heavy top, so heavy that since I work by myself, I had to design a apparatus to move and flip the top over.

The schrinkulator calculates an 1" of movement if I put in the high value of 12% and the low value of 6". I would think that would be the extremes or at least I hope so!

I was going to use figure eights to fasten the top to the apron but I am concern that figure eights would not handle that much possible movement. Thoughts?

The base is 35" x 35" with 5" x 5" legs and 2" x 5" aprons. I was only going to put the figure eights parallel to the grain. Would it be a mistake not the attach the sides of the table to the base in some way? Once again, there is a potential of a considerable amount of movement.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Toney
