I guess you must want such wide breadboard for aesthetic reasons, but it’s sure going to complicate things. I would think that the tenons should be pretty long, given that anyone sitting at the end of the table who uses the table to stand up will have their whole weight only on the breadboards. I would make the tenons pretty long, say 4-5 inches, using the method that Jim suggests (though I haven’t pinned them in the middle tenon since it gets glued).
