Thanks for the encouragement, Qwas.
About "doing it myself"... I had considered finding a 20mm Forstner bit and building a jig to insure perpendicular drilling, using my MFT top for the pattern, marking the center points of each hole onto the new top by hand using the 20mm bit itself as a center punch, etc. but finding the bit, or 20mm router bit (then I'd need to buy a "holy" rail and of course a new rail-matching router... hmmm). The searches proved frustrating, time consuming and more expensive than the CNC option, so DIY doesn't seem feasible for me... nor as accurate in the end as the CNC route.
I appreciate the great suggestion of producing more than one sheet. However, safely storing the spare(s) for an extended period would be impossible in my environment. If this venture proves out well, I can always order another, if needed 4-5-6, years out.
Mastercabman, thanks for the latest suggestion. I'll check-out MDO too.
Thanks again for all your input. Feeling I'm not "in this alone" really does help.
