The goal here is to 30x60in surface, hinged off the back of my Vidmar 
cabinets.  This is about all I have room for, and it needs to be able to 
fold out of the way.  My thoughts are as follows:

a) A piece of welded boiler-decking e.g. as the cutting 
surface.  It should be rigid enough and flat enough, and just about 
manageable on the weight front.

How quickly should one expect a cutting table to get chewed up?

b) Something else that would lay on top of it as the welding surface, 
maybe a sheet of 14ga steel.

Any better alternatives?  I'd think it has to be cheap enough to replace 
every so often, so stuff like sheet copper starts to get prohibitive.
