    Re: got wood?

    I don't think they make HDF? (If you mean High-Density Fiber... normally they refer to MDF as high density. Maybe you got confused?)

    However... from my limited knowledge, MDF is cheaper, and is a lot easier to work with. Although birch is harder to work with, I believe it's more dense and is a lot more solid.

    But it's all on you, Cojack.

    birch is not denser than MDF...fyi. The only advantage birch has is weight.

    They do make HDF. MDF is heavier than Birch, but easier to cut and rout...also much cheaper.

    Re: got wood?

    i have worked with both and birch is so much lighter then MDF and doesnt produce the dust that MDF does when cut.

    it doesnt matter what subs you have.. angles dont necessarily have an effect on structural integrity. moreso, like i stated before, thicker material will not help your problem.. dont waste the money..

    and good luck finding 1" sheets local. special order or make your own
