I am planning to make a workbench from a dinged solid core door I
picked up on the cheap. Read some threads about putting hardwood
flooring on a bench top and really liked the idea. But then there were
those who said the hardwood would expand/contract at different rate
than the door and cause cracks and other maladies.
How about laminated flooring? I know, it's not real wood, but some of
it looks really nice and would make an attractive bench top. What I am
looking for is opinions on durability. Seems to me that a slip of a
chisel, or an errant blow from a hammer and it would be ruined.
Many say put on a hardboard top, and replace it when it gets ugly.
Couldn't the same thing be said of laminated flooring? Next question
would be how to attach it to the door to make it easily removable?
Any help or advice is appreciated.
