Re: 1500yd plus pdog results
Don't use particle board. MDF is much heavier, provides a smooth surface and will not abosorb moisture as readily as particle board. Trust me on this one, I have a degree in Forestry, and I used to build speaker boxes. MDF is the only way to go if you want added stability. Routers will work very well to round off the edges too. MDF will cut your fingers easily on fresh cut edges so round them off with a router. Use carriage bolts or recess the bolt heads to keep the top surface flush. If you use more than two layers, you can recess a level into your table on the oft side to make sure your table is level.
Depending on what type of rest you are using, you can use the router to remove MDF from where you intend to place your benchrest and inlay balsa or another soft, light wood. It will receive your benchrest feet very well, and is easily remove when worn out and replaced.
