I recently bought the granite top for the kitchen island (pictures later) and I was able to negotiate a piece of 24x36x1" Silestone which is a quartz surface.
I wanted to use it as a router table top but of course I would need to cut holes in it and hopefully a miter guide slot. Its really good stuff and is pretty flat and smooth and would seem to be perfect as router table top.
Has anybody had any experience cutting holes in this type of material?
I was thinking of laying out the holes and then having the shop cut them but if I can spare myself the expense so much the better.
My main issue is the thickness that while it is great being 1" thick, I would have to rout out a recess for the router. That would seem like a lot of work.
Thoughts, suggestions, advise?
