When you only need a small piece of 1/4″ thick mdf board for a molding project, then you can go to Home Depot and buy one of their pre-cut boards.
You pay a premium for the convenience, of course, but sometimes it’s worth it.
For example, Jennifer and I just bought two pieces to use in our half bathroom, rather than special order it from the only independent lumber yard in town (poor service). I’m going to make our stepped crown molding from it.
I also built this little diy spice rack for Jennifer (half way down the page) using one sheet of it. That’s a pretty inexpensive spice rack!
