I come up with around 300 lbs for the top at around 10% moisture content.
16' X 12" / ft = 192 so to get cubic inches we multiply Length x width X height
192 (L) X 48 (W) X 1,25 H = 11,520 Cu Inches There are 1728 Cu. In per Cu. fy
Divide 11520 (Total Cu. In) by 1728 (Cu. Inch in a cubic Ft) and we get 6.7 cu. Feet of table top - more or less
A Cu. ft of red oak weighs around 45 lbs at 10 -12% moisture content.
So we multiply 45 lbs per Cu Ft by 6.7 Cu Feet and we get around 300 lbs. Since the outer edge is a little thicker lets add another 25 lbs being generous. This is at about 10 - 12% moisture content which is probably a little more than actual.
So anyway, i fig around 325 lbs for the top.
BTW, the table is totally AWESOME!
