Medium Density Fibreboards

MDF: an era-defining material in woodworking.

Medium-density fibreboard is an engineered wood product made from hardwood or softwood shavings turned into wood fibres. The fibres are combined with wax and resin binder and formed into panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF is generally denser than plywood and particleboard and is a perfect building material. It has excellent cutting and drilling qualities and a smooth surface ideal for applying paint.

The product name derives from the distinction in densities of fibreboard. Over time, the term "MDF" has become a generic name for any dry process fibreboard. It is typically composed of 82% wood fibre, 9% formaldehyde resin glue, 8% water, and 1% paraffin wax. Large-scale production of MDF began in the 1980s, in both North America and Europe. Specific applications have driven the evolution of the various types of MDF to the versatile product it is today.

Good To Know

What can you do with MDF?

Since MDF's development and mass production, it is now one of the most popular wood substitute products due to its many qualities, price point and versatility.


MDF sheets are easy to cut to size and provide a smooth edge that is virtually chip-free. The unique composition is uniform through the board, which makes it possible to effortlessly create curved cuts, cut grooves, or create intricate designs with a CNC machine or handheld router.


An MDF board's surface is smooth, perfect for applying paints or covering with a veneer or melamine. The choice in size also ensures that you have MDF sheets for whatever application you need.

The different MDF boards available can be used in specific environments; for instance, moisture-resistant MDF can be used in areas of high moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Sheets of MDF also come in several thicknesses, ranging from 3mm to 50mm, and regardless of the thickness, they're still easy to cut through.


MDF can be used for carcasses to support load-bearing furniture, as cabinet doors and drawer fronts, or made into fretted or reeded wall panelling.


Expertly cut to size MDF is easy to work with and a staple material for any carpenter, furniture maker or DIYer.
