MDF has many advantages over plank wood, particleboard, or high density fiberboard. It's very smooth because the wood fibers used in its manufacture are uniform and fine. This makes it have low tear out, which means that when sawed, the end has a smooth cut instead of a jagged edge. This also means that a coat of primer and a couple of coats of paint take well, leaving an attractive, finished surface unlike other composite wood products.
It can be nailed, glued, screwed, or stapled, making it as versatile as plank wood

This trim worked fine for my application. Its got a pretty good finish on it and eased edges on one side. I was caught off guard though that its only 11/16" thick not 3/4" like most 1x.

Worked out great. Nice modern touch and cheaper than other materials. Cut ends didn’t accept paint very well. It was a paint and primer combo. Ends up having a different texture than the outside of the board. May be best to terminate it into other stylish pieces.
