Thanks for the advice on the surfaces. Still looking at some options to seal it.Looking dang good.
I really like how you were able to integrate the used cabinets. It's rare to see a shop with so much counter space. I'm a big fan of having plenty of work surface. I can stage multiple projects with room.
I'll give some input on the island plywood top. I have one in my shop and I use the space more than I expected. I ended up adding another layer of plywood that I glued and screwed tight to the original single layer. I was banging and whacking heavy stuff on the original and it wanted to bounce more than I liked. I also ended up adding a sacrificial layer of 3/4 MDF melamine on some of my bench space and the island because the softer woods dented so easily. The MDF melamine is hard but the laminate layer wears off with abuse. That stuff makes a fantastic surface for out feed tables on wood projects. Wood slides nicely and it's easy to clean.
