I vote laminate
A few years back I toured a manufacturing company and apparently went so ga-ga over the huge hunks of uhmw all over the place that they felt sorry for me.
About a week later a huge box loaded with about 75 lbs of the stuff showed up at my house.
It's great when positioned to slide up against something else smooth, like a miter slot, another piece of uhmw, phenolic, plastic laminate.
I've used it in dozens of things. I would not use it as a table surface. It's relatively easy to gouge or dent. You can easily dig your fingernail into it. It's also possible to scratch it and for it to wear.
Check out jigs that include it. You'll almost never see it positioned to come in sliding contact with the wood.
