Category Information

MDF board, Medium Density Fibreboard is a man-made sheet material that is often chosen as an alternative to solid wood, perhaps because it is free of the natural defects of timber. It is constructed of tiny strands of hardwoods and softwoods that are mixed together with resins and wax. The size of the strands determines the type of board that is created. For example, small pieces of wood will create particleboard, whilst if larger amounts of heat and pressure are applied, a hardboard is created.  

MDF board has a surface that is consistently smooth making it ideal if you are looking for something that you will be able to paint. This also makes the board easy to cut to size, as necessary, particularly if you want to create designs that are intricate.  

MDF is a popular choice for creating furniture, perhaps because it won’t expand and contract like timber that would otherwise be used. MDF sheets often feature a veneer that resembles the surface of the timber, which is a popular choice, as it creates a nice finish. 

It can also be used in flooring, internal wall linings, as well as general joinery projects.
