If your going to make it that thin don't use the the method where you run solid strips one way & a bunch of little pieces glued & stapled or nailed in the other way. I don't like that method anyway. I use the method where by the strips are run across the dado blade & both sets of pieces notches cross & interlock. See pics. This is the base I built my SCMS/ multi tool station on it is 27" wide & just over 7' long. I don't believe it take any more time to run the pieces across the table-saw clamped & gang dadoed than it does to fuss around gluing up all the little pieces. Masonite with a finish well waxed so the glue won't stick...May even be fine without the finish just wax.
