I’ve been building an assembly table that will hopefully be flatter than my workbench. I know sometimes we woodworkers have an obsession with “dead-flat” when it comes to assembly surfaces, which I don’t, but I do want to make sure the table provides a decently flat surface.
Originally I was planning on a torsion box top (a la WoodWhisperer’s assembly table) but recently started to realize some of the clamping options I want to build into the top would work better with a thicker top (e.g. double-layer MDF).
Would 2 layers of 3/4” MDF glued together be as reliably flat as a torsion box? Am I splitting hairs?
