I am building a desk top that is made up of 1 1/4” mdf. That will be veneered with 1/16” of an inch quilted maple, on both sides. It will have a boarder of 3” wide 1 3/8” thick bubinga. It will be supported by legs on the four corners and the aprons in between the legs.
The over all demotions of the mdf center will be 20” deep and 54” wide. With the bubinga boarder it will be 26” deep and 60” wide.
I was wondering if there is any danger that the top could sag or warp, in anyway?
Any input would be great. I searched for span limits of 1 1/4 mdf but could only find limits for 1/2”,5/8”, and 3/4”.
Personaly, I believe the boarder of bubinga will add a lot of strength?
