Questions I have are: Would 6/4 QSWO stock for the field with a 2" thick edge banding be sufficient for a table top of this size? The design is a trestle table loosely based on a design from The New Yankee Workshop. Since the top is 4' wide by 12' long would it be better to make up three 48" x 48" panels and then join the panels together end to end? If I go this way would it be possible to make a nearly invisible seam between the three panels or would I be better off not trying to hide the seams and incorporate them into the design somehow, like edgebanding the three separate panels and then joining them together? Or should I attempt to edge joint 12' long boards and glue up a massive panel for the top? My shop is equipped with a 6" jointer, contractors style table saw, 13" wide thickness planer, biscuit joiner, router table, etc. I know it would be very hard to edge joint 12' long boards on my jointer, thus I'm leaning toward the shorter board/separate panel solution. However am I asking for trouble in gluing edge grain to end grain when attaching the edge banding on the ends of the panels? Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
