Would a single sheet of 3/4" OSB work for the substrate? We have some left over

I wouldn't use it and haven't heard of anyone else using OSB. Some of the other fellows may have some information about OSB.

The prefabs are made out of fiber board or particle board, a whole different product, I don't like any of them for counter tops though, I prefer plywood.
