I am also considering 2 pieces of MDF face-glued, OR two pieces of
Baltic Birch ply face-glued. With either, driving screws into the edge
of these seems problematic to me.
My opinion is that you don't need screws. My last saw glued
together with no problem. The back fence was, I believe, 3 chunks of
2X4, stacked and blued. Very stable, worked well for a long time, but
then my needs changed, and I scrapped it. Haven't made a new one yet,
because I got a miter saw and have been making a custom setup for it.
The next saw sled will probably be all ply, laminated as required, with
the at least one chunk of 2X4. All glued. The chunk of 2X4 will run
from fron to back, a couple of inches high, with two screws holding a
caulking gun that's been modified into a hold-down, that was salvaged
from the other sled. It's all good.
