My concern with contact cement and MDF is how it will hold up over time. I used contact cement between Formica sheet and MDF for extensions to my table saw. Glued Formica to both sides. A year or two later, Formica sections began to fall off. The glue didn’t fail, the top surface fibers of MDF released.

Of course, your application being painted doors inside a home where the humidity levels are fairly stable may make a huge difference over my table saw extensions in my woodshop and humidity swings during Summers in Indiana.
