I have a lead on some free 3/4 inch plywood that was previously used for shipping container for machinery. So I am thinking about taking a look at it since it is only about 6 miles from my house.
My question is have any of you covered regular 3/4 plywood (probably c/d stuff) with Formica or any other veneer to make a useable work surface?
I am curious if the undulations would carry through. I already have some Formica left over from my work bench build and free plywood would help make a table top or two for upcoming mobile carts (flip top versions, I hope).
What say you?
Another thought – how can I make one side fairly smooth. Will drywall mud work or would I have to use auto body filler (which I don’t have any experience with) to get a smooth surface to glue the Formica to the plywood.
Thinking hard and heavy about taking a ride in the morning to check out this free wood. :-)
