mdf does sand down smoothe as hell... i think you would need to put something down for that smoothe look tho. Myabe roll vinyl (thin) on it. I am not sure, let us know with some pics when you guys are done.

yes, it could appear the same depend how they paint it, with mdf you don't have to resin it, just sand it with wood sandpapers of 120 grit then 240 grit and at last iron sand paper of 500 or 600 grit and it will be very smooth. the one in the picture is sanded with those number of 120 160 and 600 grit sandpapers.

A plastic covering on it maybe? Cut and heated on the edges to round over the corners.
