    mdf smell

    I have my box in the back of my ex bolted down to a sheet of 1/2" mdf that takes up the entire truck so it doesn't fly around. The thing is it kind of smells and i'm concerned that it's toxic.... is there a different type of wood I can use instead that wont smell and is maybe safer to breath?

    Oh, and there's nothing toxic about the smell of MDF. The only danger comes from inhaling MDF dust, more specifically the glue in it.

    Smell should go away in time or put an air freshener in your ride...

    Re: mdf smell

    MDF is terrible to use as a base. I'm sure you think in an accident the mdf would prevent the box from hitting you...but have you ever seen MDF and impacts? Ya it's dense but hit it with a hammer and youll break it. Those bolts will just tear out of the mdf in a crash

    I smell my box you made me, but nothing a couple of air fresheners didn't fix. I mean why would one want to risk death trying to have some bump in the trunk? So take the box out and live longer.

    Re: mdf smell

    mdf only smells when its hot or burning really. kinda bad when you cutting and it gets hot and burns, it release formaldehyde then.
