True that! They could spend a few hundred dollars more on better quality materials and have a much better product. My table broke. I pulled the DW towards me and onto the bed that the table made and thought that it would hold. Doh!. I had some 1/2 inch marine grade ply left over from another project. I cut 2 piece to fit, glued and screwed them together so that the screw would not show on the top. I rounded the edges and painted it with urethane. Damn, it looked good! Nothing looks quite as good as wood. It was far lighter and stronger than the original.
