  • Why choose MDF?
    MDF performs as well or better than solid wood for a wide variety of home decor projects. Featuring uniform thickness and density, MDF cuts more easily than other wood products. And maybe best of all, no sanding! It's project-ready!
  • Is MDF easy to finish?

    MDF's clean, smooth, unfinished faces and edges are easy to work and ready to customize with the finishes of your choice. These include paint, vinyl decals, and sealant. Stain is not recommended, however.
  • What is MDF?
    MDF translates to Medium Density Fiberboard which is a high-grade, composite material made from wood fiber and resin. It is similar to particleboard, but much denser and stronger.
  • Can I paint MDF?
    The surface of MDF is smooth and dense which is great for painting! You can use both oil-based and water-based paint on your project.
  • Can I display my MDF project outside?
    MDF is recommended for indoor use only. If using outside, place in a covered or protected area, and seal well (and often!) with a weather-protecting finish, such as polycrylic (recommended) or polyurethane. Both increase durability and offer moisture and heat resistance.
