I need to buy or make a router table top. My plan is currently to use two layers of 3/4" MDF wrapped in Maple with formica on both sides. I'm undecided if the top of the Maple frame should be laminated or not, I'm a little worried that expansion/contraction will cause the laminate to break loose. My current top that came with my TS is just laminated MDF with no edging so maybe I could skip the edging.
Looked at the Borg and formica is sold in 4x8 sheets, that plus the contact cement will cost me over $100. Has anyone gone to a custom countertop place and asked them to laminate something? $.$$?
I have also searched online and can't find a premade top big enough since I want it 27" (depth of TS) by ~36". Does anyone know of a pre- made top that is that big?
Last option is the pre-laminated chipboard sold at the Borgs in 4x8 sheets that I could double up and band with Maple. Probably quick to do but will leave me with a crummy end-product.
