After 20+ years of wanting to get into woodworking, I am taking the leap.
I am planning out a workbench that I can make with very limited and basic tools.
Drill, Circular Saw, Screw Driver, Clamps, Hammer and Bandages 😉
After reading many articles I am leaning towards a version of the plywood bench article. I am looking at using 2 layers of MDF for the top.
My questions are:
Can the MDF hold up to a front vise being bolted to it. My thought was counter sinking the top and running the bolts all the way through the top.
Can MDF hold up to holdfasts and dogs?
If any of the answers are no, what do you recommend as alternatives to the top material OR holding devices?
