will it fail?
I can't say with certainty that it won't fail, but it is highly unlikely over that length it would split enough to fail. It is a great looking table and the proportions are right on.
You can always add bowties later if you want, but I would look at doing something underneath rather than on the top surface, should it become necessary..... unlikely. :smile3:
The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
