Does anyone know where I can buy thin sheets of plastic laminate for a router table top. I’m having trouble finding it anywhere. Do the big box stores or Rockler sell it?

Thanks

HD and Lowes both sell it where I live.

Check with a lumberyard. They Usually stock it or can get it. Formica is one brand…

Check “Habitat Restore” they might have a laminate top from kitchen or bathroom. Our store close to me has lots of odd shaped smaller sizes.

I picked up mine at Lowe’s, but I had to get a 4×8 sheet. Menard’s had smaller sheets but they were all very bad colors or had a weird texture. I think I paid about $40. The people at Menard’s and Home Depot offered to order some but I didn’t want to go through the hassle.

Out of 3 Lowe’s and 4 HDs in my area, only one of the Lowe’s carried it. A 4×8 sheet of white was $40…other colors were more expensive.
