    I would suggest you use T-nuts and appropiate sized bolts as mdfb has a tendency to split. drill pilot holes for the T-nuts, tighten carefully .

    The problem with T-nuts is that the MDF isn't a very good material for the cleats on the back of the T-nut to grib, so they can spin on you when you try to tighten them or remove them, not good. I just used pre-drilled holes and mushroom head wood screws, because I don't plan on removing the driver much.

    Pre-drill, add a drop of wood glue, and panhead screws are all that I've ever used.

    I tried T-nuts and lost interest real quick. I may try threaded inserts in the future. I've got tons of them. But I mostly just pre-drill and use black oxide panhead screws.
