Table saw extension mod for router
I'm building a tablesaw extension from a found piece of 3/4" melamine (Ikea scrap $3). The extension is 27" deep by 28" wide. I've framed it with 3/4" x 4" poplar.
As I was building it - I realized I could mod it for use as a router table.
I'm wondering if I should be concerned if the melamine/particleboard will be strong enough to support the router plate/router. Would I be significantly better off laminating a chunk of plywood or MDF in the area where the route plate will be located?
