I have just finished these two jobs in MDF, :roll: Oh well, I did enjoy the Oak while it lasted. :lol: First one is a small cabinet to cover a consumer unit, built in MDF and Pine and the second project is another rather large radiator cabinet.


My next job is another MDF unit too. :yawn:

Nice work, Looking sharp and clean.

Its a shame customers are selfish and don't want to pay over the odds so you can enjoy working with expensive materials :lol:

I got the rad cover fitted today.

Customer was very pleased with it and has now asked for a small fence and gate with more work to come. :D

Very smart, imagine what it would weigh in oak :p
and imagine after 2 winters of being on full for 8 hours a day with wet socks hanging over it, what shape the oak one would be? :D

Alan it must have taken a very long time to cut out all those 'fleur de lis' on the panels! :lol:

On a more serious note is it ok to join MDF with biscuits? I am thinking of using 12mm or 18mm to form a frame for a toy box with two panels on the front, or would it be better to use dowels?
