If your only using Saw Horses with your board on top, try adding another Saw Horse in the middle, screw the top to it and add weight to the horse You didn’t say if you had 2×4 runners on your horses to screw the top to the 2×4’s. Screws may pull your MDF Top flat to the 2×4’. The cost of two or three 2×4’s the length of your top is cheap. All my work benches I went with the cheap method. Built the frames and put 2×4 cross runners across for a lower shelf, and 2×4 cross runners where the table top sets on. Then I screwed a single sheet of 3/4” premium MDF board to the top of my bench frame. My center work table is 4’x4’, my outer work benches are only 2’ wide. Placing cross runners where the equipment goes gives the support for weight. Holding up 2 years now and still straight. I can always add or screw on another MDF board over it later. My gluing table is just setting on 2 Saw Horses, and is a single sheet of 2”x24”x8’ laminated MDF board. been straight now for a year.
