Table Top (??)
Just a quick opinion poll for some sage wisdom-
I was given a table tennis table for Christmas, which was impressively damaged through shipping. Amazon tried to contact the seller for me to return the item, but they never responded. So, I received a free, fully refunded ping-pong table. While not suitable to utilize for its intended purposes I naturally wanted to appropriate it to suit other needs.. like a free table top (it measures 9’x5’).
Contacted the company to determine exact composition, which they said was particle board, and another source said the coating on top of it was comprised of something called “polybutylene.”
I have plenty of scrap to support the top, and would need to make it thicker for the Kreg leveler hardware to screw into anyways but:
Is it even worth my time?
First time to build a router table, so in your experience is this material just junk no matter how well supported it is?
Like I said, the Kreg leveler has something like 1.25” screws for installation so to make it thicker, those screws would be drilled into a different material under this potential table top.
You can see from the photos the composition of it due to damage.
Anyways, it feels real solid, is smooth, and I have a ton of it now, so I thought I would try to save some cash. Let me know your thoughts!
