Material Overview - Pre-cut MDF and Plywood Sheets Cut to Size

Before we can fully explore the various cutting techniques, we must first delve into the many characteristics of MDF and plywood.

MDF Sheet Cut to Size

MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) is an engineered wood product that’s crafted from wood fibres, wax, and resin compressed under high pressure and temperature. Some of its key characteristics include a uniform density, smooth surface, and excellent machinability. For these reasons, MDF is often used in interior applications, such as cabinetry and furniture.

Plywood Sheets

Plywood is a composite material that’s created by glueing layers of wood veneers together, with each layer’s grain perpendicular to the adjacent layers. Because of this, it boasts high strength, dimensional stability, and resistance to warping. It’s not too dissimilar to MDF in terms of its applications, as it’s commonly used in construction and woodworking projects, such as flooring, roofing, and furniture.
