German term or phrase: Oberplatte
This is from a cabinetmaker's brochure. Description of a Nachttisch (night table I assume).

It says the night table is 'ohne Bettischplatte', mit 2 Tueren, einem Einlegeboden, einem offenem Fach und einer Schublade. Oberplatte mit Schichtstoff HPL 8 mm beschichtet. Kanten der Oberplatte mit abgerundetem Massivholzanleimer. Schublade und Tueren mit beschichteten Stahlbuegelgriffen.

Explanation:
Sometimes the simplest answer is best. The Oberplatte on a wood table is simply the "top", although you could call it "top piece", "top board" or "top plank". But for this description of the furniture, simply "top" suffices. It sounds like it's laminated wood. If it's metallic, then of course "top sheet", "top piece" or "top plate" work.
