WHAT WOULD BE A GOOD HARD COUNTER TOP SURFACE FOR A GARAGE COUNTER TOP. MY THOUGHT IS TOP GLUE 3 2 X 10'S TOGETHER VIA JOINTER AND BISCUITS AND CARPENTERS GLUE, THEN LAMINATE THE TOP.

That will work but you may want to attach some cross pieces to the bottom at right angles to stiffen the top and keep it from warping. Framing stock will do that. Either that or just fasten it to the base firmly or both...

I would use a thick hardboard laminated to plywood. I've had this installed in my shop for several years and is still fine. It is heavy when you get done. I used 3/8" hardboard and 3/4" CDX exterior plywood. I have two shop benches that are 36" x 94". Items also slide easy on the hardboard.
