I am need of a new place to tune my skis as the workbench in the garage has been torn out and replaced with cabinetry. I would buy one, but cannot bring myself to spend $2-400 on a table. I am planning to build one with metal legs that can be folded, but do not know what to make the top out of. I think 3/4" plywood would make a great base, but would like some covering to put over it so it looks a little better in the garage. are there any materials that are smooth, but nonslip, heat resistant to 400* (in case I lay the iron on it the wrong way), fairly durable, easily cleaned, and will not cost over $75 for a 24"x48" sheet. I am thinking about a sheet of silicon, but am having trouble finding a sheet the size I want without getting killed with minimum order amounts. Are there any other materials that would work for this application? Any liquid surface products?
