I'm planning on doing something DIY for my beardie but haven't figured out what material I want to use just yet. Depends on how I end up finishing the unit, I guess...

I like the MDF idea.
I used it for my aquarium stand and it's terrific to work with.

MDF is very heavy though. Just keep that in mind depending on where you want to put it afterwards.
