Jeff, can you disassemble any of the current top without destroying it? :) jk

MDF is fine. Makes for a great work bench top. It takes a lot of water to really deform the MDF. Do you slobber like a camel? ;)

If you are concerned about it (like for spills), I’d seal it off with oil-based poly and then affix hardboard to the top.

I think you have a very fine workbench…and I think many people around here have a false sense of what is truly needed in a workbench. Having an heirloom workbench is somewhat of a rite of passage, but it’s not a necessity.
