I need some advice on a table frame that I am currently planning. The frame will be 19" W X 45" L. The legs will be 4 cabriole legs with 2"x2" post blocks. The frame will be 29 1/2" tall. The apron will be a 4" sculpted apron. There will be one additional support in the center of the frame. The frame will be made of hard maple. The top will be a piece of 3/4" marble that weighs 11 lbs. per square foot. Roughly 70 some odd pounds. My question is can I build this frame out of 3/4" stock and will the 3/4" be strong enough to support the weight of the top, or should I go with perhaps 7/8" stock and would 7/8" be able to support the marble top or should I use some other thickness of stock? I really need advice on this matter. Thank you in advance for your help.
