Making table top thick enough to add Kreg mini-trak
Been playing with ideas for a table top made to be transportable. It will hold my DIY router lift.
I have a steel frame with 3/4" plywood screwed onto it. The steel frame is 1x2 box tubing. Late in the game, decided it best to add some tracks to lock things in place. To get the tracks installed I need some additional thickness. The track is 3/8 thick.
I need to make the table thicker, so the question is, could I laminate some 1/4 inch tempered hardboard onto the plywood using Contact cement? I have some heavy Formica for a finished surface. By doing adding the hardboard, I would route less than 1/8 inch into the 3/4" plywood to mount the tracks.
I'm trying to not make this much thicker and heavier. It's 24 by 30
The framework is plenty stout, so no need for a second layer of 3/4. This will be stored in my carport so whatever I do, I want to keep it stable.... that's why the tubular welded steel base.
