I apologize for the slow progress but I got some time to get out to the shop and get the MDF core for the top assembled. I wound up running out of glue but I was able to get a decent bead distributed over the surface of both pieces. I also wound up using a few more screws than most would probably use but I’ve read stories on screws stripping out on MDF and wanted to make sure that if one or two didn’t bite that I would still have adequate clamping force. I countersunk both sides of the bottom layer and only predrilled about 1/8” into the top. I used 1 1/4” deck screws and had no problems with strip-out and there do not appear to be any gaps between the two pieces.
