Router Station Top Question

So I’ve been building Norms Deluxe Router Station and would like some feedback from some folks who’ve been there with this plan.

At the moment a phenolic top is WAY outta my wallets reach but I’m wondering if the MDF design norm has works well and for how long? Does it sag after awhile and how much? I’m not mounting a 3 1/4 HP router just my PC690.

Anybody had success with the top Norms designed out???

Thanks!

many people use 2 pieces of 3/4” MDF laminated together which makes a 1 1/2” top. If you finish that with several (3+) coats of polyurethane it’ll give you a very smooth, and durable top.

I finished Norm’s Router table project earlier this year.It’s been a few months and i haven’t noticed any Sagging. I used two 3/4” mdf pieces glued together and then counter top laminate on top of that it seams to be working nicely.
