All Home Depots should have MDF... MDF means Medium Density Fiberboard. So whatever you were looking at is probably it. And whoever told you they can't cut it for you was being a lazey prick, you have to pay $0.50 a cut but they are able to do it. Don't let them **** you around.

Yeah, ask Robin... the employees at the Home Depot down here are lazy pieces of ****... they don't want to help you with anything, and I've seen them RUN from someone trying to ask them a question.

i know what MDF is, maybe it came off that i didn't, but what they have there is not MDF, its a lower end fiberboard, it costs 8.00 per sheet of 2x4. they said that they couldn't cut it per specific dimensions, but they can cut it down to make it transportable, should i ask about the 50 cent per cut?

yeah, i don't want to screw up with a skillsaw seeing as how ive never had to use it to make exact cuts before. i used to work construction and what i had to cut was just sheets of plywood that had to be around a certain number of inches, not exactly.

Well MDF costs $8.00 for a 2 x 4 sheet here.... :confused:

Did you look for a 4 x 8 sheet? Buying a bunch of smaller pieces is only going to cost more.

They DO have it, or they can get it if they happen to be out of it; ask questions and don't be an ignorant POS. ;)

At the home depot here there is a big sign above their cutting station that says: No project cuts.

They will only cut it to fit it in your vehicle.

thats not true....the home depot here does not carry sheets of MDF, they d have 4 x 2 sheets of it in the shelving section tho. The only store that carrys sheets of MDF here is Menards and they do not offer any sort of wood cutting. Home Depot and Lowe's here have the saws but they don't carry the wood

All three HDs I go to will cut, as long as the cut is not shorter than one foot.

And it's 25cents around here. :)

being lazy and having iamamp7pimp do it FTW!!!!!!

You should look around and ask the old dudes at HD. They are always brutally honest. Guy at my HD was telling me how to get everything cheaper. Told me of future sales etc..

I had HD cut a sheet in half for me to fit in my Blazer yesterday... When I got home and put a square on it it wasn't square at all. I think all of their panel saws are out of alignment.

Same here , HD doesn't carry 3/4" MDF in any way shape or form . Lowes does though , and the first two cuts are free . I usually have them cut it in half at least . I'm old and lazy , and its a whole lot easier throwing a half sheet up on the table saw by your self :)

All lowe's should cut wood unless the saw is broken. The average panel saw is off by 1/8" per 48". There are multiple reasons for this, but keep in mind, the panel saw is not meant as a substitute for you buying your own saw.

I refuse to use the saw and many others do as well. Some idiot brings us the wrong dimensions and then wants a refund because it's off, even though we told him in advance it would be.

I use the saw to cut in slices 16.5" x48" and then line it up when I get home. I won't ever need a panel larger than 16" so it works for me.
