Thanks for the replies you two.

Brian, that’s pretty much what I was thinking, minus that flip top. I figure doing a bunch of cross supports with the 2×4’s would also make it similar to a torsion top. The Miter Station will also only have 4 sides on it essentially also, as I plan on storing things under it that can be wheeled in and out from under it (compressor, planer, shop vac/dust collector).

Les, glad to know this will work. My reasoning for the MDF top was it’s sturdy and flat. But by sandwiching it with screws I could replace it fairly easy once it gets damaged as it would only be screwed in from underneath to the plywood. What did you use as a sealant? It seems most used a regular shellac.
