If the wood is properly dried, the temperature swings won’t really matter. It’s the extreme lack of humidity that will do damage. Dan had some nice joinery tips. I don’t think a normally assembled tabletop will fail, but I have never lived anywhere with those extreme humidity swings. I’d think the relative humidity of winter in Alaska is comparable to the high desert in the western US. Be sure to plan for serious seasonal movement and you’ll be fine.
