Planning on making a planer sled for my router. The plans I saw are for Mdf but money is a little tight do would osb be a reasonable substitution, or should I just stop being a cheapskate?

Sold. Besides price, osb is sold in 4x4 chunks at lowes where Mdf isn't. Thank you!

I think everytime you have to pick up the MDF sled and put it on your router table you will regret using anything that heavy. I wouldn't use OSB for anything but sheathing or sub-floor. A hardwood plywood is more expensive but is more stable and would probably last from now on if you take reasonable care of it.
