    is HDF much harder to work with? or it's not really necessary?
    I would think that it would be downright heavy as hell...

    MDF is made from 100's of comppressed sheets of wood ?? Hmm I think jmac is wrong

    MDF is a type of particle board -- it is made of wood particles glued together by synthetic resin, with a medium density - as opposed to hardboard. They are typically found in 4' x 8' sheets, with 3/4" thickness, and are commonly used in furniture and cabinetry.

    HDF is also known as high density marine plyboard

    MDF is just as dense as particle board (MDO) as they are compressed to the same stress... but as mdf is much smoother and also particle board is main purpose in life (useless for much else other than subfloor) is for laminating... it is more coarse and provides a better surface and needs far less prep in laminate or thermofuse applications.
    mdf on the other hand is to smooth and requires a bit of scuffing

    oh... when u get good at building u will not use screws ... u merely dovetail your joints a bit of glue and you get a much more strong connection and u can say... "wow". and find that if your not a cabinet maker or something close... then u just spent a lot of time learning something that is totally USELESS to you

    hahahha...but from all the box-building that I've done (only done 1, but did a lot of samples), I now plan to make my own bed and have a little system done up for my room under the bed...kekek..I know it might be a longshot, but I do like my GT3, and I do like a good sound system everywhere I go~
