Default From samples

Wife brought home some samples from work that were being pitched. Looks like MDF that's got some sort of coating on it. It's almost 1/16" thick. They use this stuff for the inside of auto dealerships so I would guess it's pretty tough. So I played around with them a little. Blue ones are 10 x 12 and the silver are 12 x 12.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I like those, John. Did you have any problems carving the MDF with your bits? I thinking about dulling and glue build up on them.

Signs look great John.

It's probably some type of MDO (medium density overlay).

Jim,

Went right thru it. No problems. The coating seems like some sort of plastic of some kind.

Great recycling!! Any chance they are the pads they put under the tires in the showroom?
