So…input from a couple of structural engineers say a thicker “stem” piece will do the trick. A couple more said to reinforce the triangle at the top, another said to attach a metal plate to the center of the triangle and attach the top to it, taking forces off of the “spokes” created by the triangle.

Thinking I will do a full re-do using a thicker pedestal piece to run the slabs from—at that point, the slabs will be more for show than structural support, and the structural support will be the stem piece alone.

Going to try adding a couple of metal brackets to the triangle and see if that helps. I’d really like to keep the aesthetics (within reason) and gain stability no matter the ultimate route.

Thanks for everyone’s input on this. Really, really aprreciate it
