Regarding – “finding white laminate”

Have you checked the shelving area at hour local big box store?

I recently bought a piece, intended as a work surface, at Menards. It was 8’ x 23.5” and 1.25” thick. I think it cost about $25. You could make a great DP table from that.

IMO – you would need to put an edge on it. On my project, I put on a 1” oak edge and secured it with glue and wood dowels.

Advice – When I made a DP table I put in 2 t-tracks into the basic surface, but I did not have the t-track continue through the edge I had made. Big mistake. It makes it very hard to clear the chips out of the t-track.
