Welcome to the forum. Looking forward to seeing some of your work and your new shop.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Quad - You can use almost anything that's firm and flat. Traditionally RAS tables have been pressboard, MDF, or Ply, but you could use something laminated like a Formica counter top material, or possibly even melamine though it wouldn't be overly durable.

Welcome to the forum.

I am planning on doing the same thing but while in the process of building mine I had a table saw accident and lost a finger. Needless to say My project is on hold at the moment.

I plan on building cabinets for both sides but at 39" instead of the standard 34" kitchen cabinets. I am building a top from MDF but banded with a hardwood for strength and support. I also plan on putting a horizontal router in the same top/fence and maybe adding a router table at the other end. I've included the plans I'm using for the idea as I found them.
