Do you need to a piece of MDF backing board cut to size for a picture frame or photo frame?

How is MDF Made?

Our eco-sustainable MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) is made in Australia, using the high-quality fibers of eucalyptus & pine wood shavings and pieces that might otherwise have been discarded but can instead be recycled to make a rigid backing board. This contributes to reducing waste and maximizing the percentage of wood used. 

These wood shavings which are compressed and bonded with resin glue. The wood sourced for manufacturing our MDF boards is sustainably sourced from Australian plantation timbers only. MDF is also recyclable as well. 

Our MDF backing boards are precisely cut on our industrial CNC machinery and come in a variety of pre-cut size options. All boards are 3mm thick, making them durable, strong and ideal for support backings for picture framing. 

What Can MDF Be Used For?

MDF sheets are commonly as backings in picture frames and photo frames, because it is rigid, durable and strong. These MDF sheets can be used as hard backings for canvas frames.
They can also be used by artists as a substrate for acrylic or oil paintings, after the surface has been primed with gesso.

Can You Cut a Piece of MDF to an Odd, Custom size?

We only offer our MDF cut to the standard sizes, as listed. If you require an uncommon or odd size, keep in mind that you could manually cut your own to size from a larger, standard sized piece, using a score and cut method, described below.

How Can You Cut MDF Board by Hand with a Scoring Knife?

Cutting 3mm thick MDF by hand is easy and simple. You also don't need any power tools or saws. You just need a marking pen, a ruler and a utility knife for scoring the board. Just follow these simple steps: 

  • Firstly, measure and mark the area of the sheet that you want to cut. 
  • Using a solid ruler or straight edge as a guide, use a utility scoring knife to firmly cut a deep, narrow groove into the surface of the MDF board.
  • Repeated this process, pushing more firmly each time in several passes. 
  • You should be able to achieve a straight, smooth cut in half a dozen score cuts.
