When I built my table last year, I used 2 layers of 3/4” plywood and then put laminate on both sides. Even then with the weight of the lift and Porter Cable Router, I was worried about sag over time so I used two pieces of angle steel under the table. So far so good. No sag and no other issues either. I agree with Nitewalker and Fred. Laminate will last a lot longer than Melamine and if you’re going to put a lot of money into the table, lift and router, why skimp on the top?
