 Are you talking about one of those unfinished, small table tops that they sell at home depot?  I like the idea of it having a beveled edge!

Once again, Home Depot to the rescue! lol!  I always assumed masonite was some caking thing....doh!

You use some kind of very sturdy base and then attach something to the underside so you can get your fingers under it. I use self-adhesive rubber furniture bumper things, but you can glue little wooden feet, or strips of square dowel under your board as well.
