Can I use 1×6 for table top?
Consider building your tabletop out of boards about 6″ wide (1×6 or 2×6), or close in size (I use x4 and x8 boards on occasion). If you go smaller, you’ll be adding more joints, which means more pocket holes and more sanding.

- Quartz composite tabletops.
- Ceramic composite tabletops.

How thick should table top be?
Transitional styles vary greatly, but typically favor table top thicknesses in the mid-range, from 1″ to 1 ¾”. Not excessively thick or thin, but well-proportioned to the interior space. Larger, more rustic pieces may work well with a thicker top.
