Best material to use for router table top ?
Ok I'm not a machinist so cast iron is out , but was wondering about other materials .
I thought about melamine but it isn't very scratch resistant . Was thinking about laminating mdf with arborite (kitchen counter top stuff) but would be concerned about how flat the end result would be .
We get these killer deals here on occasion on 1" mdf , but the sheets are precut 5'by4' which would work fine IMO .
And yes I realize mdf as most materials should have some structural support underneath to prevent sagging over time . There's another thing I read here about phenolic coated wood.Not sure if I spelled that right ?
