I didn't see it so will ask did you make it so you'll have a 1/4" masonite replaceable top if not I believe you should have. Its real nice to be able to renew the top when it gets worn bringing the bench top back to like new.
I have another bench top that is just MDF wrapped with an edging that my CMS & small Drill-press & Mortiser set on & are operated on. Because I need to move the Drill-press forward when in use & back out of the way of the CMS when not in use I have noticed there are scratches in the MDF which is quite a bit softer than tempered Masonite.
Yes I have tempered Masonite on my bench top & yes it is scarred but it is several years older than the other bench top & has seen much harder use over many more years.
