MDF Panel

Any idea where I can buy a 1/4" x 8' x 4' MDF (fiberboard) panel locally???

Or equivalent.

Thanks,
P

Home Depot. I use it when I make my own mouldings.

I assume you meant 4 foot by 8 foot

I went there and was told they don't have it. I'll go to the "Professional" counter.

Fixed it... thanks!

They say they don't have it because they are too lazy to help you find it.

Pedro, what are you making with MDF? It's heavy, not particularly stiff, and falls apart when wet...

Pedro, if HD & Lowes give you the snub you can go try Smoot or Barrons but there will be a premium

I agree. I asked for rivnuts and the same guy told me that they don't exist.

My RTT "cardboard" like flooring is deteriorating. It's absorbing water and is starting to bulge.

I saw another RTT that had a nice wood finish and wanted to go the same route. But instead of real wood, I want to use something that will not absorb water. ie. Plastic

I called Smoot... they will call me back. If not, I'll swing by after work.

Maybe I'm looking for the wrong product.

Get a 1/4" thick sheet of veneered marine grade plywood. Then stain to suit. Lots of options on the veneer: birdseye maple, cherry, etc. You can even purchase from Amazon:

That's what the other RTT had.

I wouldn't even worry about the veneer...just get some marine grade plywood and seal it. In a RTT application, MDF seems like the wrong product

Hdpe is my suggestion. I can get it from some of the thermo formers I know.

I bought two 1/4" x 8' x 4' sheets of marine MDF. It had to be special ordered and I had to wait a week to get it. Apparently 1/4" thickness is not common at my local lumber yard. Google "lumber yard sterling va" for a place where you can get it (~$80 per sheet? Pull my leg and I'll look for the invoice).
Now that begs the question.... What are you building?
