  • black MDF !

    i was recently at a site where they used black mdf , this can be an alternative to expensive veneer/painting and/or boring bare mdf / bb !
    donc

    Hmm, sounds intriguing. Wonder what that costs compared to a typical sheet of MDF from the big box stores? I also wonder if it really looks like a painted box, or if it still has that same matte appearance as MDF... just black! I didn't see any prices during my quick google search. Probably didn't look hard enough though.

          Troels uses it extensively in his builds.

            I brought this up years ago. At that time, it was not easy to find in the U.S.

              fwiw I have used black and violet, it is nicer stuff to work with than normal MDF for sure and comes up nicelywit Here's an example (finished with danish oil). NB: I'm in the UK so can't comment on US availability.

                Where is it available in the US? I think I would like to try it.

                  I don't think I did find any, you can look for it yourself, it's been a few years since I looked.

                  2 minutes on google (evil), they might sell you a boxcar load.

                          uncanny, the timing. I just ordered some last week. I have been looking at it for some time. Interlam is the most readily known supplier in the US and is based on NC. It is $108.00 a sheet of 199mm (.75) and you can order a sheet at a time. While it is more expensive, it is ready to go. From what I have seen and read, you finish with lacquer and your done. Edges sand smooth as well. It is also rates E0 and non-toxic. If you are west coast, you can find at trinity. Much more expensive though. The shipping either way will get you.

                          The architect I was speaking with in Atlanta, told me it was also 40% stronger and more dense. I am definitely going to try it. Interlam (Forescolor) sells it in about 6-8 colors. Should have mine by mid-next week. I will report back.

                            Very cool. Did you order it direct or from a local supplier?

                              Ordered directly from manufacture in NC. Interlam...you are ordering Forescolor product. Go the interlam-design site. They will sell and ship a single sheet. But shipping is about $50. Not cheap. If you are west coast, you can order from trinity, pre-cut in basis 12x12, 12x24, 24x48, etc...its more expensive, but if you are trying it...may not make sense to buy a full sheet.
