Question Egg table in progress Questions.

Ok fellas I need some advice, as I am no carpenter.. I bave built my frame for my egg table. First screw up was I used 2x4 for the frame, not so much a screw up as far as sturdiness goes, but measurements it seems everything is just a little off as far as bracing and stuff goes. For the top I am using 1/4 slats of whitewood, what ever that is. I was gonna use Red Oak but it was 10 bucks a stick.. How much over hang should I have with the table top? how much spacing between the boards? I have tried a 1" overhang, but it doesnt allow enough room for the slats with a screw as a spacer. Should I just fit em as tight together as possible? I have gone as far out as 1 3/4" over hang, and it is still not enough. What do yall think? I can take some pictures later today if I need to..
