I had problem with that when I placed the machine on my headboard shelf- the shelf acted as a passive amplifier. Couldn't get to sleep until I got a TV tray from downstairs to set it on.
Well designed speaker boxes actually transmit little internal sound to the outside world, unless they use a reflex port which mainly outputs at very low frequencies. If the MDF box is at least 18 mm thick it should damp sound nicely. The main problem with putting your CPAP in a small box would be with heat dissapation. It can't be a closed box or the machine couldn't blow air. If the opening was of any size a lot more noise would come via the opening than by transmission through the wood itself, I think.
The above is my opinion. It is just possible that I may, occasionally, be mistaken.

Everything put together sooner or later falls apart.
Woot I have new one! A battery backup. Ailu already has that, so I'm just catching up. But with the storms we have tonight, I'm glad it came today.
My battery backup ran my machine 23 mins, early this AM. Thank goodness! Storm season is just really starting here.
