Medium Density Fiberboard vs High Density

9 posts in this topic

Is there any real advantage using HIGH DENSITY FIBERBOARD over MEDIUM DENSITY FIBERBOARD?

I would PM Hugh G. Rection he seems to know a lot about wood. No pun intended.

You have no idea how badly I wanted to facepalm that. Anyway, HDF is stronger than MDF, but of course costs more. In my opinion, if you can afford HDF then you can afford Birch plywood, and I'd prefer to use Birch.

The only problem with HDF is it will eat your blades and drill bits. Alot of older shop Signs were made with HDF.
