It’s hard to tell in the picture, but it looks like the top is only 3/4” thick (?).....you need a dead-flat top, and to get that, I used 2—- 3/4” pieces of MDF glued and screwed together to give me an 1 1/2” thick top….I laminated BOTH sides of the top to keep the top flat, and to keep it from expanding and contracting due to changes in humidity in the shop…..The thicker the better, I believe, and mine is braced up under the top to prevent any sag…...My router table is the “Norm” r.t., and it’s been dead-flat for about 4 years now…....
