MDF also known as medium-density fiberboard is inexpensive, durable, and a good choice for many woodworking and carpentry projects. When a project calls for painted trim, we almost always advise to use MDF. MDF is mostly used for internal use applications, in part due to its poor moisture resistance.
The Advantages of using MDF include:
- MDF is dense flat
- MDF is very stiff
- Has no knot
- Easily machined
- Because it is made up of fine particles it does not have an easily recognisable surface grain.
- MDF can be painted to produce a smooth quality surface.
- MDF has no grain it can be cut, drilled, machined and filed without damaging the surface.
- MDF may be dowelled together and traditional woodwork joints may even be cut.
- MDF may be glued together with PVA wood glue.
- Oil, water-based paints and varnishes may be used on MDF.
- Veneers and laminates may also be used to finish MDF
