I’m working on my dedicated mitre saw station and I’m almost at the point where I need to place the track system

I’ve desired to go with the Kreg top track and stop system but I’m wondering what type of wood should I use to place the track into I know it has to be 3/4” thick..would poplar be pjs once the entire station is made of poplar ply or solid poplar

I am using the Kreg track system and have it screwed into 3/4” plywood. Plywood will be less likely to move with changes in humidity. Whatever you choose make sure that it is flat.

Plywood or melamine would be ideal.
