Size and scale are important design aesthetics, that seems to be a awfully thick heavy top for a relatively small table, especially, if your breadboards are going to equal 19” of the table top, it will visually be a bit jarring. If you think about the fact that a general place setting is 20” to 24” of table top, and if you’re going with a farmhouse trestle base that’s two persons per side, see sketch, circles are a 10” dinner plate.

At the same size of plates a 4” breadboard has a better look and is perfectly effective for the design and the structure to combat cupping.
