Quite possibly the people at Lowes sold you the wrong thing. It is not unheard of them to miss label items and not know their head from their bottom. The pictures posted here of MDF by pne123 should resolve this. Eh?

Cabinet Material???
MDF is a generic name -- the quality of the material ranges from flake board up thru stuff that is incredibly dense -- ie a 1/2" piece of HDF could weigh more than the 3/4" flakeboard you got at Lowes.

My prefered material is multi-layer, void free plywood (ie Baltic Birch) -- i've given up on MDF except for those cabinets where there is no budget for wood (the MDF we use is typically free).
