MDF or OSB would be fine. You just need something that's flat and will stay that way. My Dad replaced his stock table with OSB probably 15 years ago and it's still working great. Make sure you use the right screws for MDF or OSB. Standard screws don't work well with MDF. You need "composite" screws.
I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
