Is an engineered wood product. Technically, MDF contains a mixture of recycled solid wood, wax, and resin bonded together under high temperatures and high pressure to create a uniform wood-like product that is far cheaper than real wood.
It is available in raw form which is easy to paint in many different colours or with decorative overlay such as wood veneer. Unlike solid wood, MDF does not contain knots or rings, making it more uniform during cutting and in manufacturing. Typical MDF has a hard, flat, smooth surface that makes it ideal for veneering, as there is no underlying grain to telegraph through the thin veneer as you would see with plywood. MDF can be cut to virtually any shape. Shaping MDF is easier than shaping solid wood, making it easier to do more elaborate designs.
