I need some advice on building a work table for us to use for school work, bill paying, and all that other fun stuff. I want to paint it so I was considering particle board for costs sake. It needs to be about six feet long and just under three feet deep and 30" high. Right now we are using the dining room table that belonged to my great grandparents. And my blood boils when the boyfriend slides his laptop and crap across it. Please help!
