Very nice work!
The one who says it can't be done should avoid interrupting the person doing it.

Excellent work!  I built a similar table w/o dog holes and it warped a little. I would recommend that some stiffening bridges are installed on the bottom.  I thought the breadboard edges like yours would keep it stable, but they did not.

Yes, I did the same because of the size of the top.  I have supports running front to back along the length of the table.  The bridges are pocket screwed into the breadboard edges.
