I have heard of an exterior grade MDF, but have only seen it made into siding (expensive yet looks cheap…and tacky) I imagine they would have a bonding agent that is waterproof….and hopefully UV proof also. I do not know the price of it….but I still think you would be better served by an exterior solid wood…like plywood or such….because even if the binding agent is waterproof…the wood particles are not…sooner or later it will break down….but that is more a personal preference….I am not a big fan of MDF…I pretty much only use it for jigs.
