MDF maybe plywood no way , by the time you figure ripping and edge banding you could use the real thing,the plywood will not stay straight if used on styles and rails .Also you cannot treat the inside edge of the styles and rails where they meet the panel We use MDF only if the budget is nill, that being said MDF does make a nice paint grade door if you apply lots of lacquer to it. and it machines well . just be aware of the edges ,sand them well because the material will absorb differently than the field.
