First post here after lurking for a while. I’m a complete newb to woodworking and find it to be an addictive and enjoyable hobby.
I’ve built myself a router table using (2) 24×32 pieces of MDF glued and screwed. Laminated on both side. Routered for a combo track ant t-track for the Rockler fence I bought on sale. I’m using a Jessem router plate to hold my Bosch 1617evs.
I’m getting ready to build a cabinet to support it. I’m looking for advice on what to use. 3/4” plywood, particle board or MDF. I’m planning on building a carcass and using 1×2 red oak for a face frame. I will cover the outside in a thin red oak ply or veneer to make it appealing to the eye. I could also make the whole thing out of red oak ply but risk the chance of messing up and having it cost me dearly. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
