Challenge

John Penny of JP Joinery used CaberWood MDF Pro MR boards from West Fraser when asked by a client to design, build and install a “wow” bespoke kitchen.

“This was my first full, bespoke kitchen project” said John “and it presented me with some challenges.”

John’s client is based in Kirkliston, a small town to the West of Edinburgh, and COVID lockdown restrictions added challenges to the installation.

Solution

John sourced West Fraser’s CaberWood MDF Pro MR from MGM Timber branches in Edinburgh and prepared the door and drawer fronts in his workshop.

Testimonial

“I have tried a few brands of MDF but have found CaberWood MDF Pro MR to be the best choice for a perfect finish. I sprayed the MDF with a water-based paint which contains a full chemical hardener. This counters any fibre-raising which happens, to varying degrees with all MDF but, when experimenting with different brands, I have always found the West Fraser board to be the best”.

“I used a mix of 9, 18 and 22mm-thick MDF for the variety of units - almost 40 in total - and, as always, found the boards easy to work with. The quality is always consistent which is important, especially on such a large project. It doesn’t splinter or chip meaning there’s very little waste. Compared with other brands I’ve used, CaberWood is really well priced too!”
– John Penny.

Result

The client was delighted with the end result and John will be using CaberWood MDF on all his future kitchen projects.
