Micarta is a brand name, and they make many different grades. Does it look like laminated paper, or does it have a cloth weave visible in it. I assume it is brown, which is a Phenolic resin laminate. There are paper, cloth, and glass fiber grades, quite sure you don't have glass, that would not be good. Glass laminates are usually off white or green, but have seen them in black and blue.
Several companies make this, and McMaster Carr has the Garolite brand, all we need to do is determine which type it is.
A very close substance to the paper grades of Micarta is Formica counter topping. That would probably work too.
