Particle board top work table vs maple top?
I'm looking into getting a dedicated work table for working with dough and only dough. It will never come into contact with anything sharper than a bench scraper. My regular countertops are granite and it makes working with even relatively dry doughs a horrible experience.
What I'm trying to decide is between particle board tables like this: https://www.uline.com/Product/Detail/H-1135-WOOD/Industrial-Packing-Tables/Industrial-Packing-Table-60-x-30-Composite-Wood-Top
(Bear in mind, those aren't the exact ones I'd get, just good examples I found after a quick Google search.)
Now, I'm sure maple is objectively better, but is it 39.13% better?
ETA: Just so everyone knows, I plan to treat whatever I get like a cutting board. Sand the surface to get rid of any factory stuff, then treat with mineral oil and board conditioner.
