Went to the local welding shop and had a metal frame done. Fitted it:

The darned top in the middle is so heavy I couldn't lift it into place. Will need to get someone to help me.

Still all alone do just managed to drag, heft and curse at the middle-top to get it lifted for fitting.

Somehow managed to deliver this table to site where I have a contractor renovating our house. Got someone to sand it down. Now, spraying sanding sealer. Next will be polyurethane.

Ang gondoh! Lumulundag yung grain!

BTW, how did you prepare for wood movement?

Good question. Note that the central part has lengthwise grain while the ends have crosswise grain. The ends have a steel frame connecting them and the central part just rests on top of this frame, not glued nor mechanically fastened to the ends. That way, the central part can move independent of the ends.

To keep the central part in place, there are brackets underneath that clamp it to the frame but still allowing movement.
