If are looking for a timber merchant to help you install some storage cabinets or even skirting boards, then you need someone who is experienced in MDF Cutting. Step forward, experts in the field- Booker Timber.
As MDF, or Medium Density Fibre wood needs to be cut with care, it may be best to leave the MDF cutting to the experts. Although, it may seem quite easy to cut, it can be quite hazardous. This is due to the potentially dangerous gas given off through MDF cutting called urea formaldehyde. Released when the material is cut or sanded down, it may cause irritation to the eyes and the lungs. It is therefore vital that if you are thinking about having the MDF cut down, ask a timber merchant to do it for you or ask them for some safety tips.
In the same way, the dust given off when cutting may also be extremely dangerous especially around children. If in doubt and if you do not have the suitable equipment such as goggles and a facemask, ask an expert to do the job for you instead.
Made from a combination of by products from wood and paper, it is often considered to be a cheaper alternative to real wood. So whether you are looking for a new cabinet for the kitchen or a set of storage shelves for your daughter’s bedroom- you can always find a use for MDF.
By having a merchant at hand to cut the MDF down to size, no job will ever seem too big or too small either. As long as the correct safety procedures are followed and the material is treated with respect and experience, there is no reason why you cannot have the bedroom shelves or kitchen floor you always dreamed of.
