I just upgraded my router from a craftsman to a Bosch 1617 combo, and figured it was time to upgrade my router table from a tabletop model to a larger more stable design. I have a desktop that I think would make a great top, but would like some of your opinions on my thinking.
The desktop is 20” x 32”, made out of 1” particle board and covered with, IMO, a thick laminate (looks like at least a 1/16”) it’s in great condition and flat. I was thinking of mounting it to 1/2” MDF to add to the stiffness (overkill?). Not sure if I am going to go with a mounting plate or mount directly to the tabletop.
Anyway, let me know your feeling. Thanks for your input. BTW I am building a cabinet style base for this table.
