You can use that for your router table, even the cabinet drawer fronts, etc (looks really good), plus it's great material for jigs where low friction surface is desired. Glue doesn't stick, it's rock hard, and stable.
    Absolutely, forgot about that, good point. I have not bought any, but I know some of the suppliers for concrete tools and forms sell this stuff too. I think it is the same, but I maybe mistaken. I don't remember the price/sheet, but it was reasonable compared to laminate+plywood+adhesive and the fact that it could be used for jigs etc.

    I used 2 sink cut outs glued back-to-back and the Lee Valley small, round table insert kit. No fuss, cut outs were free, insert kit had excellent instructions, and I a routin' fool. No fuss, no sag, above the table adjustments for the Freud router.
