Sorry, KD = Kiln Dried

I was trying to say not to use the wet 2x? from Home Depot. You want something that once you scribe it to the floor, it will stay that way.

You bring up a good point on the support. 3 support feet in 8’ on your old table, no wonder you had sag. When I was suggesting laying out the boards to scribe to the floor, my mental picture was one board every two feet because you were describing a heavy load. So, I was already at twice your original support. Using that same 2’ on center (both directions), I would have put 15 feet on your old table. Using the tee nuts and threaded feet is not expensive.

What material do you plan to use?
