Walnut Farm Table
Bear with me, I'm new to woodworking and the community. This weekend I bought a 6" jointer and 12" planer to work with rough cut wood for the first time. My goal is to build a dining room table for my family. Dimensions are: 7' 6" X 40" with a basic frame underneath (yet to build). I planned to keep the table top width at 3/4", however after straightening out my boards on the jointer, and planning it down, I'm down to 5/8" for half of my boards.
Questions: Is 5/8" thick enough for a walnut table?
I stopped the project, to get inputs first. Thanks for any ideas you may have.
