I’d like to make a large table from a full 4×8 sheet of plywood, with solid wood trim covering the edges…
1. Will this type of table-top hold up, as long as I put enough finish on the top?
2. What types of thing should I keep in mind when designing the support structure? I’m going for simple, but not something that looks like a work table.
3. Would good bracing be better than doubling-up the top thickness to prevent sag?
-- I'm strictly hand-tool only...unless the power tool is faster and easier!
