Product Notes:
  • MDF does not have good holding strength when compared to real wood. If being used for furniture items that need to be frequently dismantled or reassembled, it may not be your best choice.
  • MDF cannot come into contact with water, as it will make the fibers swell and damage is very hard to repair. Do not use for outdoor projects.
  • Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.
