I agree, pine is a bit soft and less dimensionally stable than say maybe poplar?

There is not a lot of lateral stability to the design. The joinery needs to be very solid to prevent the table from wobbling.

Thanks for the feedback.

The table will be 96"x43"x30". I will use something better for the base like poplar. Do you have any other suggestions on how to make the base more stable?

I agree that the walnut will be dark enough without stain, not sure what I was thinking. Should I use a paste wax or something else? I don't want a really glossy finish.
If you made apron connecting the four legs at the top an inch or so taller and then connected the legs and aprons using a locking angle block that would help.
