First time poster. I’ve tinkered around with woodworking for a number of years. I’m finally building up my workshop with tools and my project list with fun. I want to build some shop tools and in particular a table saw sled. The company I work for allows us to take some of the wood used in packaging some of the parts we use. I managed to get my hands on some 3/4” 2-sided melamine plywood. It is not MDF core. Would this make good tools like a sled? It seems to me it would slide pretty well because of the melamine. My only concern is the the wood doesn’t look as “tight” on the edges as other plywoods I’ve seen. I’m a little worried there might be a lot of voids. Does anyone have experience with material like I have described?
