So what I think I’m going to do is buy a butcher block maple top that is 120×30” and 1-3/4” thick. I’m also going to buy a set of 4 Hafele table E-Legs (28” height) to attach to each corner of the top. I just have three questions.
1. It says the butcher block top is 174 lbs and the legs I’m getting can hold 220 lbs per leg. I would think that the legs would hold it, but being that the top is so wide, if I didn’t put anything to hold it up in the middle, would the top start to bow or would the top even be stable with just the four legs?
2. It say that the butcher block top has a wear-resistant Varnique finish. What could be compared to how that feels? I’m wanting the desk to feel like a smooth qaurtz top kind of feel that looks semi glossy, but the glossy look isn’t as important as the feel is. Is this wear-resistant Varnique finish going to feel like that and if not, what would I have to do to change it to my desired feel?
3. I am wanting to mount things to the bottom of this via screws. Would this butcher block top allow for that? Is there a certain way I would have to mount things when I start screwing? Is it going to crack the wood when I mount things if not done properly?
Thanks for taking the time to answer my question and the links to top and legs are below.
