Take a scrap board of the same type of wood you're going to use, finish it the way you're planning, and measure it when dry (maybe heat it at 100 d Far. in an oven or something) then again when it's good and humid. (Maybe keep put it in the bathroom for a few days when you family is taking hot showers) Measure it and scale up for the width of your table.

move enough to cause a problem. A wide table top however could move in excess of 1/8". So multiply the movement measurement accordingly.

Uh, that's what "scale up" means.

Comparing movement in a floor, where all the boards are parallel and growth and shrinkage is all in the same direction (across the grain), to a door, where the boards are arranged in a fashion designed to reduce or eliminate movement across with width of the door (the panels may expand/contract within the frame bounded by the rails and the stiles but neither the rails nor the stiles will change in length, thus you won't see any changes at the margins.
