I built a formica desk eons ago. It was my desk in my office for years, then became a bench in a small shop. I’ve now moved it as an outfeed table for my table saw. The smooth formica works well for this application. I’d like to cut the 3/4” grooves for the miter gauge. I know I built the top with 2 layers of board glued and screwed about every 3” apart.
I’ve thought about just throwing an old router bit in my old router and hope for the best, but I know, unless I get real lucky, I’m going to need more old router bits than I have. I also have a good set of safety glasses, but hate the thought of testing them.
My other thought was a cheap blade in the skill saw and a guide.
I thought about lowering the table and adding strips to the top, but decided I didn’t like that idea.
Any other ideas besides just build a new out feed table?
