Last one this year maybe

Christmas is coming and I was just thinking how nice it would be to drill some holes in a grid pattern so I could make my own Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register for my glorified card table.
$140 seems a bit too much for a piece of MDF so the new Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register should do the trick. Maybe Santa will bring me one  Roll Eyes

If you want to throw in one of the router bits for an extra $50 or so, feel free.

As always, I just point this stuff out, you decide for yourself.

Not just once, apparently MDF can wear out  Shocked or get damaged  Shocked
This way you can drill holes and make new tops forever.

In all fairness they are designed to be sacrificial BUT
MDF is about $30 a sheet which would make three of those tops. And why not use the old top as a template to drill the new one? Undecided
Replacement cost of an MFT top should be around $20-$25 including router bushing.

Back in the real world,
If you need to replace an MDF top and need to plunge route multiple dog holes, I would suggest you drill a pilot hole first. This gives the dust a place to exit the hole and is much easier on the router bit. Drill bits are far less expensive than router bits.

I am starting to believe that website is a fake one and it is Ed's idea to tease all of us.

Why don't you check around for someone or a cabinet shop with a CNC?  They could do it for you very quickly and probably reasonably.

You are joking, right?
