thanks for all the input. I guess I’ll take another look at the basic 2×4 instead of the larger boards. I kinda like the idea of shaving the boards from the wide side instead of the narrow. It would give a larger glue up surface while leaving the total size of depth of the table at 3 1/2 inches. And, the narrower boards would give me a couple of additional boards in the same width of table top. It’s after midnight and I’m not up to figuring the totals right now but roughly 2-3 more 2×4’s added into a 30ish inch table.

This will be my first real “heavy duty” table so I’m sure, somewhere down the road, I’ll use that table to help build a different one.

Thanks
