    can you "burn" mdf?

    you remember in high school carpentry class where you would burn designs in to wood as a project?. I thought about burning the Ascendant Audio logo since its fairly simple even for my non-drawing *** into the box for my future avalanche 15. but i was woundering would it work well with mdf.

    I don't know about all that but it one of those bad smells that does have a strange attraction to it. yes you would use a tool. i saw the kit in the hardware store for like 15 bucks and thats when the idea came to me.

    That's because it kills you

    Burning MDF releases formaldehyde (sp?) into the air...part of the binding glue that holds the dust together. That's why if I ever had to burn large amounts of it...I would stay away from that pile.

    Re: can you "burn" mdf?

    Hmmm, i prefer the build up and carpet over technique but this is assuming you are plannign on carpeting the box or covering it in some way within the future.
    I have never tried burning anything into mdf tho, so i cant offer any help there.
