@phlepper: thanks for you shortcut on making cauls. I’ll try it.

@FHWoodworking: it’s a good idea, but I have already bought the MDF. I do intend to laminate and band it when two slabs are solidly glued together.

@RickDennington: presumably you drilled pilots and countersinks for the screws to ensure you did not crack the MDF? Or maybe they are far enough from the edge that there’s no chance?

@ChuckM: I was thinking the same thing. I can get a big enough critical area by using the steel table of my table saw.
