Bench Top using solid core doors
I think one of my first projects will be a workbebch with storage below. I have seen one design which used a solid core door faced with hardboard and edged with poplar. I like what I saw, but I could use some advice on what to look for (and avoid) when selecting a door. I will install at least one vice initially, and will want holes for dogs (which I would probably rout rather than drill). I understand that some core materials may not work well in this sort of application. Any help will be appreciated.
The optimist says the glass is half full.
The pessimist says it's half empty.
I say the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
