    Trupan vs. MDF

    Any ideas on Trupan? Is it worth the extra cost? Where can it be purchased?

    use 11-13ply baltic birch over either of your choices. Light and strong and easier to work with...

    Not by me.

    MDF - around $30 sheet

    11ply BB - around $45 per sheet

    Trupan - $60+ a sheet a few years ago when I last bought some
