Sorry if this doesn't help , but this is what I did .
I used that particular board that has a melamine finish , and a piece of MDF in the middle for a sacrificial fence and it worked well . I'm a big fan of Baltic birch , but not sure how well it would work for a long fence . To flimsy imo .
I bought those aluminum T tracks as well and use it to hold feather boards for doing dado's
I used a couple pieces of MDF to provide a guide on the drill press , as you want those holes placed accurately for those T slots
Here's a better pic of what the guide looks like on the drill press . Basically a piece for of MDF glued and air nailed to a bigger piece providing a way to get accurate holes in the material
Here I dadoed out slots for the aluminum T slot .
Originally I was going to use Rockler clamps to secure the sacrificial fence to mine , but I have a General saw with an Excalibur fence , which worked out well as there's a lever to remove the face of the fence . So I built a runway with metal strips to slide the sacrificial fence into position , just like the original face .
It's very sturdy , but I do clamp the fence down to the back of the table on occasion , as it raises in the air a bit if you push the material threw to fast
