Personally, I would not hesitate to use either connection method. Certainly Baltic Birch is a stronger material, but if designed properly MDF should work fine and be significantly less expensive. Avoid drilling into "end grain" with either of these sheet materials for your best connections and clamp-up glue joints enough to maintain perfect alignment. Drill dowel holes about 1/64" oversize in MDF and allow the dowels (if chosen) to be more for alignment and less for tensile strength. If this is your first RT build, make careful notes and possibly add photos so your next RT can benefit from this one's goods and bads.
