Medium Density Fiberboard as a Design Material
Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) is a stable material often used as a replacement for solid wood. Since its a homogeneous material, it is perfect for producing complex moldings and routed components. Its smooth surface is perfect for laminating. In this case, a raw, colored MDF was used as a design material to build the door and drawer fronts in this kitchen. MDF is easily machined and can be finished in many ways including all types of stains, lacquers and paints. MDF is also the material of choice for powder coating.
