I’d probably seal it with shellac and/or poly. Take the faces off if you can and seal the edges of the MDF. If you can raise the edges 1/8”, then I’d probably drop the hardboard on there, and seal that the same way. I might even put something in the poly to give the surface some grip. I think wax is not such a great idea on a benchtop – you don’t want things sliding on it. There are folks that “tooth” their bench surface to get more grip.
