  • Place to have MDF cut and delivered?

    Anyone fine a good place that can cut mdf and have it shipped? I have a table saw, but it is a smaller one, and I don't have a large vehicle. I would be nice to have the wood cut down a bit from a 4 x 8 to say a 24 x 48 pieces. I know home depot can do it, but I live a little far from home depot, lowes etc..

      Is there anyone near you that is probably using full sheets of mdf? Cabinet shop? A place like that might be able to source it and break it down a bit for you for less than it would cost to buy it and have it custom cut and shipped. Or close to it.

        This is the way to do it. Shipping heavy items takes a crippling toll on the pocketbook. But almost any community has somebody who makes cabinets. Ripping your 4'X8' sheets down to more manageable 12"x24" pieces would be a piece of cake for them. Don't forget to take them a case of beer, though.

        My HD and Lowes both have 12"x24" pieces in plywood and mdf.

          But the closest one that is near me also carries 24 x 48, but I noticed it's at a premium price. A full sheet is much cheaper by the foot. I guess next time I go to HD I can have them rip them down. I think they still do that for a minimal charge.

              At my HD the 2x4 handy panels are exactly 1/4 the cost of a full sheet. When I purchase 5/8" mdf I just have them cut it down into 4 2x4 sheets.

                Around here HD charges 2x to 3x more per SF for their "2x4 hands panels" than they do for full sheets.

                  ​Where are you located? I am in Ocean County , N.J. I would be glad to help you or any other forum member with this issue. Shipping would not be an option
                  because of weight unless you just wanted baffles.

                    ive got a ton of 3/4" mdf that never works for what I need. Let me know what sizes you need and cover shipping and it's yours.

                      When i a have a 4x8 sheet cut down , before the first cut is made I use a pencil to run a mark all away around outer edges , this marks the factory edges that you know are true/straight ,what cuts HD or Lowes does will not be true/straight .
                      donc
