I am also in the process of doing a table myself. It will be a smaller pub height table with Oak slab top about 1 1/2 inches thick and bread-board ends. Even though it is a smaller table the concern of weight and being able to move it did come to mind and my thought of doing it so it can be assembled in place was what I was planning on. Time for me to get working on it. I was looking for a fall-winter type project so time to get going !
