If this is to be a high quality heirloom type table, I’d start over with some 6 quarter lumber the full length and plane it to clean up at over 1” thick. But if this will be an everyday table maybe with a table cloth on it, you could do the breadboard in the middle and the ends but you will need some thick aprons the full length to carry the load across those center joints- like 1 ” x 3” stock Adding a piece under the top all around to give the appearance of thicker top will be a right thing to do for looks. Make the long ones full length and that will give you added strength on the edge.

My 2 cents worth…..........Cheers, Jim
