I’m aiming to build a bench mostly for hand tool work, and I inherited a laminated maple conference-table top 2 1/4” thick. Would this be thick enough for a bench-top, or do you believe I should add additional layers to beef it up?
If it needs reinforcement and additional mass, I’ll probably glue-laminate a couple sheets of 3/4” MDF to the bottom, using screws as clamps, before chopping mortises for the support framework.
Thanks for your thoughts – this is my first post.
