Needing help/advice please. I need to make a new top for my general use workbench. I am going to use 1/4” tempered hardboard as the work surface. My question is should I use MDF or particle board under the hardboard? I plan on using 2 pieces of 3/4” thick material of the MDF or particle board glued together. I am also considering “edge banding” the work surface with 2×4’s and adding a woodworking vise to the front right corner. I am going to mount my other vise to something that I can then clamp into the woodworking vise when I want to use it. I have never used MDF for anything so I do not know anything about the material.

Any advice you guys can offer will be appreciated.
