Thanks a lot, all.

I’m also considering creating the table in the image here (Sorry – not bright enough to figure out how to embed a photo):

Difference being it will have braces connecting the legs width-wise at the bottom (near the floor) and a center beam connecting those braces at the center length-wise. (Yeah… all attached with pocket screws).

I’m assuming the added bracing at the bottom boosts the stability of the table considerably. Does that change anyone’s opinion?

Thanks again, gentlemen.
