Torsion box question. Now progress reports.
I've been hard pressed to get on here for a few days. We have a friend visiting from out of state, and my computer is in the guest bedroom!
Question: In building the tops for the multistation. posts over at SMC have me leaning toward using 1/2" MDF top and bottom instead of the 3/4" I had planned on originally. Thought is that the strength of the torsion box comes from the height of the material inside the box. What should I use for the inside? Stay with the 1/2" MDF, or use plywood? Which one would be more stable and less prone to movement?
These tops will be 14" wide by 10' long and 3" thick. They will be covered with laminate on the top and three sides, and sealed with poly or something else on the back and bottom. No tools will be mounted to them, so no requirements to hold screws or bolts.
TIA for any insight you can offer. Jim.
