I need to replace the splintery top of my workbench; 81" x 30". What is the best material to use?
Is there any reason not to use plywood with formica laminate? formica chips , can catch , plywood splinters , , MDF or Melamine ,and repace as needed , U usually cover a sturdy bench top with 3/8" or 1/2" replaceable material. Its nice to have mdf so you can screw into when needed , but nice to have Melamine for glue cleanup . both have advantages , and both chap to replace.
