@ChefHDAN – My local big box stores don’t sell melamine ply, only melamine particle board. And PB is a banned material in my shop :)

@Randy – I had kind of thrown corian / avonite out in my head, assuming i wouldn’t be able to machine them. I’ve trimmed regular clear acrylic with a router before and the results were good but it generated a mass of awful clingy shavings that stuck to everything and left an unpleasant odor lingering in my shop. But now that you mention it, I’m remembering they are a type of acrylic composite… I guess if I could get a scrap chunk of it from a local countertop place, that would probably make a real good surface though. Thanks.
