What is MDF Board?
Medium density fibreboard, also known as MDF board, MDF wood or MDF sheets, is extremely popular in Melbourne because of its durability and use.
MDF board is constructed by gluing together extremely fine wood dust fibres using resin and then heating and compressing the board. After the boards have dried, they are cut in the required shapes and lengths.
MDF boards are extremely useful in constructing cabinets because its woodwork is affordable and it comes in all shapes and sizes. Moreover, MDF sheets lacks natural defects, which makes cabinets made out of MDF wood very durable. A melamine is used to cover the MDF board, which makes it look even more aesthetically pleasant. Another benefit of MDF board is that it is cost effective, which is precisely why it is so popular too and it can be easily machined.
