I was at the big orange box today getting some stuff for my yard and stopped by the kitchens department to see if they had formica or similar, which they didn’t. But then I thought about laminate flooring and I remembered how inexpensive some of that stuff is. I went over to browse and found a case that had been broken open (or returned?) by another customer.. about 20sq ft usable in it and the sales guy gave me half off for the damage so a final price of $8.50 for the case seems like a good deal. I can bond this to a stable substrate like 3/4” MDF or a sandwich of a couple layers of ply, or perhaps even going for the solid wood setup. In any case, I have a feeling that this stuff will work good for other wear surfaces as well. And I have enough to cover other things with.
