MDF stands for medium-density fiberboard. MDF is composed of small bits
of wood that are adhered together. You have probably seen MDF countless
times in the form of cabinets and other inexpensive furniture.
Strictly speaking, MDF falls somewhere between mere particleboard and
so-called high density fiberboard. Particleboard itself is unsuitable for
many home renovation projects, as it will flake apart at the slightest
MDF is extremely heavy to handle, and it will dull your saw blade. Not
only that, but it will chip apart when you attempt to screw into it.
