What is it

Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres and combining them with wax and resin. It can be used as a building material similar in application to plywood, but it is much more dense than plywood and than normal particle board. MDF is flat, stiff, has no knots, can be easily machined and has no tendency to split. Its properties are the same in all directions as a result of no grain. Its a very stable material regarding expansion and contraction. MDF is very well damped acoustically thus making it an ideal material for speaker enclosures.
