No one's going to arrest your for it, if that's what you mean.

Unless the MDF has taken out a restraining order, of course.

If it's templates you have in mind, then MDF is all that I use, and I make lots of templates. Do however make a habit of wearing a dust mask.

I use mdf for all of my jigs and templates but not the common mdf. The stuff I use is 1/2" thick paneling veneered both sides with hard maple. The reasons that I use this stuff is that it wears really well, slides really easily on my RT and I have HUGE amounts of the stuff. So it's basically guilt free jig and template making material, use it once get the job done and then throw it into the fire. Keeps my shop from getting cluttered.

I do so hope that you meant Drool, as droll is so well like BORING. And sorry if thats the effect that it had and if so then I really shouldn't say that that is a very old pic and that the stack is now at least 30 times larger. It just keeps coming in and it's getting to the point where I really don't know what to do with all of it. For the last while I have been burning the smaller stuff in low pressure boiler.

I have a small two Jersey cow barn and yes it has indeed got two Jersey cows in it and the little woman has told me that if I need a place to put the paneling there would be nothing wrong with jazzing up the barn for the girls. You know completely paneling the inside. It's a thought. Cuz like it's either that or tell my supplier to stop bringing the stuff over. It's a horrible problem I know but we all have our crosses to bear and I shall endeavor to persevere.
