MDF or Plywood?

Postby Vincentian » Thu Feb 25, 2016 9:30 am

Hello...
I am intending to start a project on making storage cabinet and shelving. I however dont know whether to use plywood or mdf in these projects.
Which one should use and in which project?
Thanks!

For shelving I would recommend that you use MDF as long as they will be out of reach by water. MDF can be painted easily.

What are you actually looking for in this two materials? I tend to think that both of them are good for your projects. However MDF will have its advantages over plywood and vice versa.

What I want to know is whether it is suitable to use MDF or PLywood in making storage cabinets and shelves.

MDF is good for making storage cabinets. I have used it too and its good. Have never used the plywood though.
