A few years ago, one of our contractors installed a switch in a wall that was covered with formica. The formica shattered all over the place. Granted, the contractor was a discharge hole and we had to redo all of the work he did but that bit of uglyness stares at us everyday.
For this reason, I'm hesitant to use formica but I love the way it looks. Note that the formica in the house is at least 60 years old which may have something to do with it.
What are micro lams?
John, the "not straight" comment should have read "not centered." I'm guessing that this is no much of an issue because I don't know how much a table router needs guides. BTW, how did you drill the holes? The centering kit I had was for a Bosch 1617. I used an awl thru the template guide and got close but one of the screws if off enough so I doesn't fit flush on the plate.
