CaberWood MDF Pro is the perfect panel for “wow handmade kitchens

When John Penny of JP Joinery was asked by a client to design, build and install a “wow” bespoke kitchen, the one product element he knew he would be utilising was West Fraser’s CaberWood MDF.

“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. John sourced West Fraser’s CaberWood MDF Pro MR from a local merchant in Edinburgh and prepared the door and drawer fronts in his workshop. “I have tried a few brands of MDF but have found this 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”.

CaberWood MDF Pro MR is moisture resistant so particularly suitable for kitchens. “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, it is really well priced too!” said John.

Needless to say, the client was delighted with the end result and John will be using the material on all his future kitchen projects.

John has also produced a video where he explains how he discovered the impressive qualities of the manufacturer’s MDF. To view the film visit
