A Woodworker’s Guide to Medium-Density Fiberboard

Jim Hayden explains this industrial product and its history in detail and then shares tricks and tips on using it — how to machine join and glue it; which hardware and fasteners to use; how to laminate, veneer, and finish it; and how to find and buy it.
