 MDF is also a engineered wood only made by binding veneer wood sheets together into one solid piece.One of the most interesting factors of this type of MDF is that it doesn’t actually have wood, but rather consists of wood pulp. It is manufactured by squeezing wood pulp between sheets of ply.Hence, this type of ply is only suited for study tables, computer tables, light-weight cabinets, etc. It cannot hold much weight.
