If you are into DIY, and love decorating your space then you are most likely to have come across MDF. Medium Density Fibre boards, or MDF boards are an affordable alternative to plywood, and due to its versatility, it is used everywhere in our modern interiors - from book shelves to chairs.
MDF's exceptional versatility stems from a distinctive manufacturing method involving broken-down residual wood and sawdust particles. These fine fibre particles are then combined and bonded with resin particles and compressed into the shape of a board. This yields a flawlessly flat surface, tailor-made for painting, laminating, or veneer attachment.
Notably, MDF's edges remain splinter-free and seamless—a contrast to solid wood or plywood. Whether elevating your home or office, MDF offers the ideal material for a sophisticated, professional appearance that's bound to make a lasting impression, especially when crafting long-lasting furniture.
