    Help, Will this work

    I am thinking of this attached tabletop design with the boards all face glued and probably 1 inch on edge and 3 inches wide (deep). It will be in a covered patio. Since there is limited movement along the length of boards, will this be problematic due to wood movement. I likely will not have the mitered border.

    I would expect horrible problems with this design.

    How big is this top ? Outdoor furniture is not considered fine, nor exceptionally long lasting furniture so, to find gaps from time to time would be expected. I would be tempted to try it with the understanding of the nature of outdoor furniture. If it's a large table, had you thought about the same layout with engineered gaps between the boards ?
