MDF boards are wood, too

Our MDF, or Medium Density Fiberboard, is a unique composite wood material made from sawdust and fibers from both softwoods and hardwoods. These components are mixed with resin and then subjected to forming by extreme temperature and pressure, creating a spectacularly pliant and workable sheet material.

There’s a lot of information out there about real wood being superior to particleboard and MDF, but like with most projects, it really depends on what you need it for. The truth is MDF board functions about as well as, if not better than plywood for many project types. The key is knowing what you need from your board.

It should be noted that MDF is not ideal for external environments where it’d be subjected to the elements, as the material will warp and quickly fall apart. Although if you need a more accessible material for furniture, custom sound systems, or other indoor application, MDF will save you tons of cash in the long run and provide the same quality as a similar strength wood.

If you’re worried about off-gassing and potential liquid spillage ruining your finish, our MDF is treatable for a variety of purposes, such as fire resistance, liquid sealing, and different paints.
