Details

As an inexpensive option, our MDF wood is a popular and adaptable material that is made up of small strands of mixed hard and softwood, combined with resins and wax to produce a hard-wearing but lightweight panel.

MDF wood has a smooth surface that makes it perfectly suited to painting or applying veneers and thin laminates, resulting in a great finish. MDF sheets are available in a range of thicknesses and sizes and can be machined easily for a limitless range of shapes to suit any project. As such we are easily able to provide MDF cut to size, to suit a variety of projects. 

Additionally, our MDF sheets take well to most adhesives and paints, so it’s great for customizing for different projects, and it’s easy to fabricate and fix with screws, nails, or glues. The light and smooth surface makes it easy to mark up for cutting or sanding down, and MDF sheets can be cut into various shapes and forms with ease using an electric saw, router, or handsaw.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does MDF stand for?

MDF stands for medium-density fibreboard and is an engineered wood-based sheet made by bonding together wood fibres with a synthetic resin adhesive and pressure.

Can I cut MDF by hand?

It is possible to customise your MDF sheeting by cutting it into shape and is a fabulous way to get it to fit around any nook and crannies in your home. We have written a guide for cutting MDF yourself, or we can do it for you, just let us know before placing an order.

How strong is MDF?

MDF is not very strong as it is a compression of multiple fibres, however, it is very dense and durable. As a rule, if you require a sheet to hold a large weight, order a larger thickness, or contact us and we can assist you directly.

Can I paint on MDF?

Often chosen for its inexpensive cost as a furniture board, MDF can be painted to add some character or personality to any piece. We have written a guide to assist you in painting your MDF.

Can you waterproof MDF?

You can create waterproof MDF by adding a high-quality wood sealant, varnish or stain or moisture-resistant paint so that your project can withstand threats of moisture and humidity. For applying any paint or coating please see our paint guide.  

What are the best screws for MDF?

To screw into MDF you will require specific screws to prevent splitting. We recommend using screws that are purposely made for MDF as generic screws may damage the sheeting.

Does MDF warp?

MDF is prone to warping and bending when moisture is concerned. That could be a result of liquid affecting the sheet, or even from an uneven temperature causing bowing and warping.

Delivery depends on the size of your order

Avoid CutMy! My product arrived with the grain running the wrong way and damaged. They've cut the phones off and don't respond to emails. I've had to open a case with PayPal to try to get my money back. The only communication I keep receiving is for me to rate CutMy. Hence I've done several of these reviews now

Perfectly cut boards to my required sizes, and probably worked out cheaper than me doing it from big sheets, possibly making an error, and having off cuts as wastage
