Back To The Wood Shelf

I hit a snag while building the frame for the wood storage cabinet this past weekend. I know a few things about working with wood but nothing about working with MDF.

I tried using things I have on hand - my trusty Craftsman drill, wood glue, wood screws and nails.

My first attempt was to attach the frame to the MDF with nails. I ended up with a lot of bent nails!  Then I tried pre-drilling holes and using the wood screws I have.  Much better, but I will need to go get smaller screws made especially for MDF.

Seems like there is always something else I need to buy before I can finish what I'm working on.

If you want to know more about working with MDF go here. Maybe after one more trip to Home Depot I can do this?!

Hope you have a great day!

Good luck, Kathi! Don't forget to stop and smell the roses on the way to Home Depot!
