I am building a farm table for a friend. The top is 8/4 white oak and after the milling and the glue up I estimate it will weigh 145 pounds. The bottom will be painted so I was going to use soft maple legs and apron but my local lumber yard doesn’t have 8/4 soft maple. I wanted to use 8/4 to avoid a sagging in the apron in the future.
I am now considering making the legs and apron out of ash and painting it. Do you foresee any problems with doing this? Or have nah better suggestions?
Thanks for any help!
