About This Product

MDF has many advantages over plank wood, particleboard, or high density fiberboard. It's very smooth because the wood fibers used in its manufacture are uniform and fine. This makes it have low tear out, which means that when sawed, the end has a smooth cut instead of a jagged edge. This also means that a coat of primer and a couple of coats of paint take well, leaving an attractive, finished surface unlike other composite wood products.

Highlights

  • It can be nailed, glued, screwed, or stapled, making it as versatile as plank wood
  • Medium density fiberboard, or MDF, is a composite wood product similar to particleboard, it's made out of wood waster fibers glued together with resin heat, and pressure, MDF is appropriate for many applications, from cabinetry to molding to shelving
  • Builders value MDF because it can be nailed, glued, screwed, stapled, or attached with dowels, the wood fibers used in its manufacture are uniform and fine, which makes it very smooth, it does not warp or split, and does not expand and contract like nature
  • Oil-base or latex paints can be used when finishing MDF boards
  • Compatible with most standard shelving hardware (not included)
  • Ready-to-use size
  • Low tear out when sawing
  • Can be primed and painted

Answer This Question

A:  No - this item is 4ft long. It's possible a local store may be able to cut it. You can contact the ProDesk at your local Home Depot for assistance.

    A:  Yes, you can cut this material (using the appropriate saw blade). Keep in mind that you will loose the width of the saw blade with each cut, so, those pieces will be a bit under 12 inches.

      Q:Can this be special ordered in the store in a length longer than 4'.? It's hard to find the 16" depth anywhere for MFD boards, but I also need a longer single unit that I won't have to piece together.

        Good quality board. No voids or surface issues. I did have to sort through the stack since some of the pieces at the store were up to 1/8" less than nominal and I needed the full 16" width.

        Product title aside (I would never use MDF for shelving), this product met the need for a wasteboard/backer, it was undamaged, and it was the one size stocked at a reasonable price per unit.

        The material is exactly what I needed and ordered. Showed up at the store and it was ready to go.

        This was perfect to create the shelves for the bookcase I was fixing. It was smooth and easy to cut.
