I am building a workbench for a client who wants a sheet of stainless steel inlaid flush with the solid beech top. After routing out a surface to set the sheet of stainless steel into the top does anyone have any ideas how to fasten it down? It is almost impossible to drill holes in, and because of wood movement I don’t think screwing it down would be a good idea anyway. The sheet of stainless steel is 2mm thick. Contact cement or other kind of glue?
