Medium Destiny Fibreboard (MDF), is a panel with uniform density, and a smooth surface. In saying this it can be machined, routed and drilled without the fear of chipping or splintering. The smooth surface also makes it an ideal product for painting.
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 is extremely useful in constructing cabinets because its woodwork is affordable and it comes in all shapes and sizes. Moreover, MDF lacks natural defects, which makes cabinets made out of the product very durable. A melamine is used to cover the MDF board, which makes it look even more aesthetically pleasant. Another benefit is that it’s cost effective, which is precisely why it is so popular too and it can be easily machined.
