What is MDF?
MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) is a type of engineered wood-based sheet and is a common material used for DIY and commercial projects. It is made by combining broken-down wood fibres with wax and resin to create a dense sheet.
Benefits of MDF
- MDF is a strong and durable material that can withstand a lot of wear and tear.
- MDF is relatively inexpensive compared to other types of wood, making it a cost-effective choice for many projects.
- It is easy to work with and can be cut, drilled, and machined into a variety of shapes and sizes.
- MDF is less likely to warp or split than other types of wood, making it a good option for use in humid environments.
- MDF can be finished in a variety of ways, including with paint, veneer, or laminate, to achieve the desired look and feel.
Typical MDF Applications

- Cabinetry: MDF is commonly used in the manufacture of kitchen and bathroom cabinets, as it can be cut, drilled, and machined into a variety of shapes and sizes.
- Doors: MDF is a popular choice for use in the construction of interior and exterior doors, as it is strong and durable, and can be finished to achieve a variety of desired looks.
- Flooring: MDF is often used as a core material in the manufacture of laminate and engineered wood flooring, as it is stable and resistant to warping and splitting.

Key Features of MDF
- Density: MDF is made from wood fibres that are compressed and bonded together, resulting in a product that is denser and more uniform than natural wood. This gives MDF improved stability and strength, making it suitable for use in structural applications.
- Surface quality: MDF has a smooth, consistent surface that is easy to paint, laminate, or veneer. It can be machined and shaped with precision, making it a popular choice for use in furniture and cabinetry.
- Weight: MDF is relatively lightweight compared to solid wood, making it easier to handle and transport. It is also less prone to warping and twisting due to changes in humidity and temperature.
- Cost: MDF is generally less expensive than solid wood, making it a more economical choice for many applications. It is also more readily available and can be found at most lumber yards and home improvement stores.
- Durability: MDF is a stable material that is resistant to moisture and insects, making it a suitable choice for use in damp or humid environments. It is also resistant to warping and splitting, making it a long-lasting and reliable material for use in construction and furniture.
