  1. Home depot has White Oak plywood but I questioned their pro core brand. Turns our that is an MDF core. For the 1/4" back that should not be any trouble because the fasteners go thru material into solid wood. The 3/4" thick is the base of the unit and it fits into dadoes on the sides and front stiles and has magentic catches mounted and has a peice of solid wood glued to the front. Is the MDF core suitable for base of a display case. I am worried about the rigidity and the strength when glued into dadoes? Should I get veneer core 3/4" white oak plywood for the base? I should mention the mdf core is supported all around including the back with screws called to attach the back. Screws into MDF? I am concerned about that also. I think the design was using veneer core.
  2. New MDF plant - made with rice straw
  3. You can buy painter pyramids Or you can make your own. Waiting to try these out. Some scrap melamine MDF and a few biscuits Keeps the project off the table and allows staining or finishing without sticking to the table top or paper. If the back side of something needs finishes and might not be super critical, you can do both sides at once. For example, put these in the hinge holes and pull/knob holes after you've put finish on the back, then do the front and edges.
  4. Beginning to plan for a workbench for my S-I-L's basement workshop and many ideas/plans call for MDF tops/underlay. His basement is in an old New England farmhouse that is concrete floor and walls but water (not large quantities at all) does enter. It is all channelled to a drain so does not even get onto the main floor. However, the basement is "a little damp" feeling at times. My question is: is higher humidity enough to bother MDF? We're in Maine so it's not like Louisiana humidity but there is some dampness to the place. Thoughts? Thanks Gary
  5. From the album: DerBengel's Scrapbook

    This is my first real attempt at painting (back in 1986). It's a 20" x 24" in acrylic. This is also my first attempt at mitering. It's a 1" x 2" MDF that I painted black.

  6. Been looking at ceiling fans. Just a nice basic 5 blade fan. Looks like all of them marked "inside use" have blades made of mdf. Fans rated for outside use have blades made of abs. We have one fan in the house now with mdf blades - in the kitchen - and they droop. Maybe this is from moisture, or maybe 'cause they are mdf? Will mdf blades start to droop after awhile even in dry rooms? Cal
