Topic tags/keywords: mdf ply plywood laminated

The other day I came across a piece of 3/4 cabinet ply. but the two faces were 1/8 mdf on either side. I’ve never seen this before I was curious if anyone knows what the purpose of that would be?

MDO or HDO medium density overlay or high density overlay. Used when you want the strength of plywood but a smooth surface for painting.

Is this not what Columbia Forest Products calls Classic Core?

The idea being that you get the dimensional stability and surface of MDF without
the weight or dust.

It seems similar to the classic core but there is no veneering on the outside so the mdf is just plain so I think Wildcat is right about the MDO HDO makes sense for painting.

Have your say...
