    Your right MDF wouldn't have been my choice either but hey it looks great.

    Hey Matt,
    MDF aint sexy, but it gets the job done, don't it. My shop cabinets are mdf, with hardwood edgeband on the countertops.

    Of course, every time I lift a sheet of the stuff, I tell myself NEVER AGAIN!

    I'll bet you have a big challenge building stuff that will stand up to all the kids!!

    Nice work! A lot of people scorn MDF, but for that type of project, it's ideal. I just really hate all the dust!

    Looks great! Did you do a wood faceframe to trim the edge of the MDF? Can't tell from the pics.

    It's not my first choice either, but it turned out very good!

    Very nice Matt! As an interesting aside on MDF (at least I think it is interesting), a well known woodworking author local to me works for a company installing custom made bookcases and non kitchen cabinets in new homes. These homes start at well over $500,000 and go up past the 1 million mark. The bookcases are almost always made of MDF and painted. He said that they are doing a booming business, and when things get dinged on delivery, the offending dent is filled with Bondo , sanded, and painted on the spot!
