Allen: Luckily the koa was relatively dry when I bought it and had already been surfaced somewhat, so I don’t think I will have too many issues with cracking or warping (none yet anyways). I will definitely keep an eye on it and I will check to see what its MC is once I get my meter on Friday.

Art: The legs are actually two rectangles, one on the left side and one on the right. So simply screwing them in would restrict radial expansion.

For ease of disassembly and allowing movement, would threaded inserts paired with slots in the legs (perpendicular to the grain) be sufficient to allow movement? I think this is what Aj2 suggested, but with the addition of threaded inserts.

Thanks for all of your help!
