Laminated tops work fine on a Router Table
I have built 4 router tables from scratch to do specific things. And laminated tops and phenolic laminate all work fine. I don't have an idealized Super Incra setup, so I will never need the hundredths of a millimeter flatness that is suggested.
The words I homed in on were "router table".
Not CNC or a something needed to make a Hologram Table.
For all the fuss, I would opt for a laminate top as you suggested, for making a "Router Table".
And Cherryville Chuck also hit the nail on the head when he posted that "Counter top laminate works as well as anything you can find."
