Thanks to all of you for your input. One of my major concerns is that I’m a heavy water drinker and tend to slop it about quite a bit. I’ve seen what happens when it gets wet and it’s not easy to get it back to flat again without tearing it up. I actually have 3 layers laminated together on top of an old metal desk frame I found in the basement. The bench is about 5 feet long and has two metal cross bars supporting it. I don’t think we have to worry about support.

Oh I’m not real concerned with 1000th’s of an inch, just looking to keep a decent reference surface. So I guess it’s either put something over it or the wax idea which I liked for my particular concern. Unfortunately I was dumb and laminated all 3 pieces together to the frame as well, so I can’t really see any easy way to peel and replace.

Thanks again guys and any other input is appreciated by me and probably any others in a similar situation.
