Keep in mind that MDF is very abrasive. It can render a sawblade or drill bit useless in very short order. When I was manufacturing MDF based speakers I had to keep spare carbide blades and a diamond edge router bit on hand to keep production going. Even with a very good blade on your plane I can see MDF as a way to get your practice at sharpening.

MDF doesn’t hold a candle to decent Australian hardwoods in terms of blunting tools!

I really want a water-wheel sharpener, like a Tormac, but have yet to convince hubby of the usefulness of such a thing.

The local college here offered night courses in power tool use, fine cabinet construction and Kitchen cabinet making. I took the kitchen cabinet course and redid my whole kitchen. Saved me thousands.
