The next step in building the benchtop router table is to cut out the square hole in the “sub top”. So I was getting ready to do that, when I discovered a potential problem.
The plywood I used is warped. I knew that, but I didn’t really care, because I didn’t intend on keeping the table when I was done. Except, both the top and bottom are bowed out. Which means:
- The table won’t sit solidly on the workbench (or whatever you put it on). It’ll rock.
- I’ll be attaching the melamine top to the warped “sub-top”, which sounds like trouble to me.
So, I’m going to think about it for tonight. I think I’ll probably just continue on and hope it works well enough to complete the project. But I’ve learned from experience to let something like this “marinate” a little before making a final decision.
What do you think I should do?
