    What do you guys do with leftover MDF??

    Not sure if this is a repost or not but thought about this earlier today. Do ya'll build other things after building that sub enclosure or just throw it away?!

    Save it, cut it into stilts for fiberglassing or routoring. I'm saving sub cut outs right now to make audioanonomos a catus podium.

    I save mine to make braces, speaker rings, or push sticks. I also stack a couple of my old boxes for a extension table for my table saw.

    throw it out, unless its a good size. i dont like to leave mdf standing straight up and down for too long cause after a while youll see it will start to warp, maybe thats just here tho with all the humidity
