Product Overview

Dimensions Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product and one of the most versatile building materials available on the market today. It’s attractive appearance, smooth feel and consistent surface makes it ideal for painted shelving and storage cabinets and offers the perfect surface for veneer application. However, only use non-aerosol paint that will not soak into the wood. Do not use MDF in applications where moisture or humidity are present. When working with and cutting MDF, work outside and wear a particle mask, as MDF produces a fine-powdered, airborne dust. If you’re looking for a natural wood appearance, try Dimensions Sande Plywood. And, as always, all Dimensions plywood comes from sustainably managed forests and is CARB2 Compliant.

1) What is the weight of the product? 2) I'm looking to make a custom sign with block letters out...

Asked by Sher April 9, 2021
1
Answer

Hi Sher, This product weighs approximately 25 pounds. A jigsaw is a perfect tool for the job. We also recommend some laser-cut template letters if you are looking for accuracy/legibility. You might consider attaching all of the letters to a narrow board before suspending from the ceiling so that the letters do not swing independently of one another, some facing front, some back, which would result in a hard to read word at times. You might also consider Internet #203504320, Model #154146, Store SKU #958719, Birch Plywood (Common: 1/4 in. x 2 ft. x 4 ft.; Actual: 0.195 in. x 23.75 in. x 47.75 in.) as this project panels weighs a manageable 4 pounds. Best of luck with your crafty project.

Is this a formaldehyde-free mdf? Otherwise how does it differ from the HD stock MDF?

Asked by bjr January 24, 2021

Answer

Bjr, The Dimensions brand is not formaldehyde-free. The Home Depot stock may vary in color - sometimes a little darker or lighter - but if it's the same size and thickness, there should be no difference in material or performance.

Answer

Hi Spencer, The MDF is a product that does not require you to sand it or even paint it when you are using for a project; it already looks nice without the extra work if you wish to use it as is, say for a shelf on the wall or a shelf on a cart, etc. Hope this helps you a bit.

Very nice piece of wood. A bit sad it was broken on one side but it will be cut down to the size I need and the measurement comes about a quarter inch to the damaged area so I’m good! Grateful for home delivery since I can’t carry anything heavy any more in my ‘older’ age :D
