Butcher block top?
I have a leftover piece of maple butcher block countertop that is just a few inches longer than my really beat up (and originally crappy) 3/4" MDF router table top. I am considering using it to replace the old top. I know it sounds really fancy, but I'm not after fancy, I'm after better durability and would like it to remain flat.
So if I start with flat butcherblock and finish both sides, is there a reasonable expectation that it will remain flat?
And anal thought processes aside, just how important is flat, really, in a router table top? Or maybe I should ask "just how flat does a router top really need to be?"
