Yes, make 1/2” slots in the cross-grain direction in the metal attachment points. The fasteners in the wood will move as needed. Have fun with the koa. It’s a very brittle wood and I’ve had lots of trouble with tear-out.

The breadboard ends on my first dining table in Austin moved over 3/16” on each end during the course of the year!
