4’ x 8’ “ plywood “ 5/8 thick sheet cut into 3 = pcs., approx 32” x 48”

connect the 3 pcs using KD ( knock down Ikea style ) connecters to form a single sheet

skip the 2×4’s around the perimeter as they are heavy and replace with plywood, join to 4×8 sheet using the same type KD connectors. These can all be 4’ in length so that joints will not be near horizontal table top joints therefor you wont sacrifice strength. Butt joints can also be connected with KD fasteners

Set table on KD saw horses………lots of examples on Youtube, again, plywood to save weight and extend life.

Done deal and all you will need to assemble is a philips screwdriver, perhaps a soft rubber mallet.
