Hallelujah Lee, it has always bugged me that the marketed woodworking world is so focused on teaching to the tool, but that is where the money is … I learned via materials and methods…. and lot of mistakes. MDF has it’s place and for what it is .. and it is really handy…. LDF is great for light weight bending forms and HDF is great for holding unusual shapes. Like Melamine, particle board, hard board, and plywood… it has it’s place in the wood shop, but not for all applications. My father taught me the basics as well… he also cursed a lot, and threw things… and was a hater of different materials….and I am still in therapy. (JK…LOL)
