Default Colored MDF

Has anyone seen this stuff? It looks pretty cool. It would be great for building cabinets out of. Anyone know if you can get it in the US?

No problem. I am just trying to find a source in the US. I think this stuff would make some intersting speaker cabinets.

Hmmm........ not really. requiring "just" a clear coat means you can't
use any filler whatsoever, so hiding seams will be next to impossible.

Kitchen doors yes, speakers I don't think so.

Cabinets built with 45-degree joints should not need filler. Come to think of it butt joints should not need filler either, unless your saw is off. And, if filler is needed, I'm sure you can mix some of the sawdust with some glue and get a pretty close match. I've built furniture of maple, oak, mahogany, pine and none of my pieces have any filler on them.

Use one color for the sides, another for the baffle. With a little creativity, interesting cabinets could be realized.

I have access to this as the shop is near to my house, but with the doubling in price from normal MDF, wouldnt paint be cheaper?

Thank you because it's an original stuff...
...I particulary like the 3D panels.
I've seen so many guys "wasting" lot of time in time in relief (textured ?) painting !
